$3.1m for Saipan port improvements

The Commonwealth Ports Authority is receiving $3,135,000 in Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability & Equity (RAISE) Grant funding, the Department of Transportation announced. The RAISE grant funds will be used to study navigational improvements for two potential future projects in the Saipan Harbor. The first prospective project is to extend Charlie Dock. The second is to dredge the entrance channel, turning basin, north and south seaplane ramps, and Echo Dock areas to allow larger vessels to dock at the port, including cruise ships, ferries, and bulk vessels. The projects aim to address safety challenges, expand port capacity, and boost economic competitiveness. Congratulations to CPA.
