Guam - The Department of Public Works shoveled the dirt on a $4.78 million project to provide shoreline protection against future coastal flooding and roadway damage for the commercial port road on Cabras Island. The project, contracted by CoreTech International, will take up approximately 3,100 linear feet of shoreline along the north side of Route 11.

Acting Port Authority of Guam General Manager Rick San Agustin told KUAM News, "On behalf of the Port Authority employees and the people of Guam, I thank the project here because eight months from now we should be doing our own construction, modernizing our port."

The project, which includes removal of accumulated rock, coral rubble, sand and other debris seaward of the existing seawall-should be completed by September.  While the Attorney General's Office continues an independent investigation, Camacho says the internal investigation is expected to be completed by Friday.
