Guam - The Port Authority of Guam is celebrating 35 years and $50 million from the Department Of Defense.  During opening ceremonies for Port Week today, agency officials recognized the hard work of the employees and discussed the challenges ahead with the military buildup.

Port board chairman Monte Mesa says the agency's modernization efforts are priority number one.  "This week and the weeks to come are going to be very crucial in the planning and execution of the Port Modernization and Implementation Plan. That's why we recognized the Port Engineering Department to really again step up the plate and work closely with the PMT," he said.

EA Engineering and Science Technology is working with the Port and the U.S. Maritime Administration in finalizing the design and overseeing the construction of the Modernization Program.  On Friday the Port Week celebration will close with the official presentation of the $50 million award from the DoD, MARAD, and the governor.
