The scope of work included the widening of Route 3, from just south of the Route 28 intersection, roughly 3 miles northward to Potts Junction.  The roadway was improved from the previous two-lane bidirectional roadway to a widened four-lane road with two through lanes in each direction, and a median two-way left turn lane.  The project included improvements to multiple intersections including new traffic signals and controllers.  In general, the new roadway includes five each HMA paved lanes; two each northbound lanes and two each southbound lanes, with an 11 ft. wide median.  Both northbound and southbound lanes included 11 ft. wide inner lanes, and 14 ft. wide outer lanes to accommodate a “bike lane”.  Work also included clearing and grubbing for the widened roadway, new and upgraded pavement structural sections, grading, drainage, bio-swales, retaining walls, sidewalks, a pedestrian path, signalized intersections including lighting, utility relocations and adjustments, guardrail, pavement markings, signs, traffic control, security fencing, and erosion control.  The project was funded by Department of Defense, with monies transferred to the Federal Highway Administration for stewardship under the Guam Territorial Federal-aid Highway Program and used by the Guam DPW Highways Division.  The scope of work for the project required that the roadway remain fully operational for the duration of the contract performance period. Temporary Traffic Control Plans were fully implemented for safety.
