Guam - Senators who sit on the legislative committee with oversight over the Port Authority attended a special briefing on Friday afternoon. Lawmakers got a synopsis of the agency's modernization plan and upcoming capital improvement projects that are in the works.  The agency is focusing on becoming a world-class port authority that is ready to handle the increased activity anticipated with the military buildup.

Phase one of the Modernization Plan, known as the "Up-Land Improvement Project", will start later this year and will cost $105 million.  The second phase, "In-Water Work", will include the structural rehabilitation of the Port's berths. 

This phase is anticipated to cost $100 million.
