Work to relocate Tinian’s 8th Avenue begins

Posted on Jul 05 2022

A part of the contract between the U.S. Department of Defense and Black Micro Corp. is relocating a portion of the existing 8th Avenue route to accommodate the plans for the Divert Airfield Project on Tinian.

Starting today, July 5, 2022, Black Micro Corp. will begin survey and vegetation cutting along the identified route for the new 8th Avenue. Vegetation cutting will continue through the new route and will continue into the smaller segment (shown as Area 10 on the attached plan). Area 10 is located on the northeast side of the new 8th Avenue route. During this activity, 8th Avenue will not be closed.
On Monday, July 18, 2022, Black Micro Corp. and their subcontractor will be performing Anomaly Investigation, which is searching for possible Munitions of Explosive Concerns in preparation for the relocation of 8th Avenue.
During the Anomaly Investigation expected to take place from July 18, 2022, through October 2022, a portion of 8th Avenue will be closed to the public. No vehicles or access may be granted until the relocation of 8th Avenue is completed by Black Micro Corp.

Community members are advised to take Broadway Street to enter the north end of Tinian, and onto 86th Street to enter the existing 8th Avenue route that is not a part of the relocation project. Black Micro Corp. will be erecting roadway signs for precautionary measures. Community members should remain vigilant and adhere to the signs you see along the roadways.

Updates and changes on this project will be provided to the public. Should there be any questions or concerns regarding the above notice, contact the Tinian Mayor’s Office at (670) 433-1800/02/07. (PR)
