Route 2 Culverts & Slide Repair

Project Summary

The project reconstructed three damaged culverts along Route 2, a major island roadway, in the Guam villages of Agat and Umatac.  The culverts helped prevent further erosion.
Work also included construction of a concrete wall along a steep rock cut on Route 2 near Cetti Bay.  Due to extreme weather conditions, traffic was temporarily shut down and then restricted to one lane while crews worked 24-hours shifts to repair the roadway.
The heavy rainfall caused the road to erode an additional 20 feet.  IMCO was awarded the project after the original general contractor defaulted and the project was taken over by the bonding agency and the Guam Department of Public Works. IMCO immediately took action and repaired the damage caused by unforeseen rain and worked quickly to get the road back to working order.
