“Thousands of people drive through the Okkodo High area of Route 3, including the students, faculty, and parents of this major campus.  This new intersection will help keep our residents safe as the road becomes busy during the beginning and end of the school day.  Together with our partners at DPW and DOE, we will continue our aggressive schedule of road projects and school repairs–all in the name of keeping our families and children safe.”
– Governor Eddie Baza Calvo
Signal light at Okkodo High School turned on 
Thousands of Guamanians–many who are students, parents and teachers at Okkodo High School–will now have a safer commute thanks to a newly installed traffic light.  This morning, Governor Eddie Baza Calvo, with Department of Education and Department of Public Works officials, cut the ribbon for an intersection on Route 3 near the entrance to the Dededo school. For a long time, the area was left without any signal lights, which poses safety concerns for all those who use the road.
The project to construct and install the signal light cost approximately $1.3M.
Traffic signal part of Okkodo expansion work
This ribbon cutting signals the progress of the expansion of Okkodo High School. Once the work is completed, OHS will increase the square footage of its building area by 70,000 square feet. The additional space will accommodate 2,000 students, much more than its current 1,200 student capacity.  This construction work is expected to be completed in July of this year.
This expansion will include 23 standard classrooms, seven science labs, a culinary arts facility, and the turn signal at the school entrance. The entire expansion project will cost $21.8M, and was coordinated through Governor Calvo, the Legislature, and the Guam Education Financing Foundation.
