June 07, 2018
Hagåtña — Another village road identified by mayors has been repaved — Santate Lane in Piti is now finished! A ribbon cutting took place at 9:30 a.m. this morning.
“I want to thank all the hard working members of the Dept. of Public Works Highway Division, our village mayors and those senators who have prioritized improving roads for our people,” said acting Governor Ray Tenorio.
Approximately 40 village roads are slated to be finished before the end of the fiscal year, and hundreds more in the years ahead thanks to Senator Tommy Morrison, author of a public law that prioritizes road improvement projects in the villages. The roads identified are a collaborative effort between the 19 village mayors and the Department of Public Works.
“We’re looking forward to even more road improvements identified by village mayors in the immediate months ahead. I want to thank you all for being such an integral part of the process to all the great work being done,” added Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio.
“The Santate Lane improvement benefits the residents living on this street and those in the surrounding area. Motorists are able to traverse the street with ease and the rain runoff is properly channeled to avoid flooding neighboring homes. The concerted effort of Governor Calvo, Lt. Governor Tenorio, Director Glenn Leon Guerrero, the hardworking DPW crew and other government agencies is sincerely appreciated,” said Mayor Jesse Alig of Piti.
Piti resident Mary Rhodes,who is also the Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association (GHRA) President said “We’re truly grateful. My family and I have been living here for six years and we’ve been dealing with multiple problems and challenges with this one road. This has really improved the environmental surroundings with regards to all of the neighbors within Nimitz.”
“This is Heaven on earth! I really appreciate the efforts of everyone in the Government who made it happen, and all the hard working staff at Public Works,” said Juan Santos, resident of Santate Lane.
DPW has repaved more than half a dozen village roads the past two months to include Biang Street and Gil Breeze, and is scheduled to complete approximately 40 roads, 2 in each village, in the next 90 days.
Immediate upcoming road projects include:
Lamasu & Biridan Pulattat in Dededo
N.E. Spring Lane in Sinajana
Chalan Fongu in Yigo
Assumption Drive in Piti
Aragon Street in Mongmong Toto Maite
Pagachao Drive in Agat

In the upcoming years, there are hundreds of village roads scheduled to be repaired and resurfaced (see attachment). The roads were identified by the 19 village mayors and D, however, if Bill 270 authored by Senator Frank Aguon passes, these road projects will be cancelled due the lack of funding.
