Route 1 & 8 (Hagåtña Bridges)
Southbound lanes on Marine Drive between Route 8 and Route 4 have been shifted to the east side of the center median area adjacent to the north bound lanes. Heavy equipment will be moving construction materials within the work zone during off-peak hours. Minor traffic disruptions may occur due to this activity.
Motorists making the left turn from southbound Route 1 onto Route 8 should expect additional wait times. This is due to additional green time being provided to north bound traffic on Route 1.
