VIDEO: Phase II of Hagatna Marina Improvement Project Finished, 3 Months Ahead of Schedule


Guam – (Thursday, November 7) – A ribbon cutting ceremony was held this morning marking the completion of  Phase II of the Hagatna Marina improvement project.

The $1.7-million dollar project was completed 90 days ahead of schedule. The project funds came from a Department of Interior grant. Black construction was the contractor.

General Manager of the Port Joanne Brown called it the most significant upgrade that the Marina has received since it was built 25 years ago.

“These are the most significant upgrades that this boat basin or marina has received since it was built. The changes and the improvements to come will be the first major significant improvement since it was built 25 years ago. The port is going through the most significant modernization, ” said Brown. 

Governor Eddie Calvo was also proud of the many improvements the PAG has been making and congratulates them. 

The Governor said, “I can’t tell you how proud I am of management and of the workers, the hard-working people at the Port of Authority for the job they’ve done. Look at our port, look what the improvements occurring at the Port at Apra Harbor, look at the improvements occurring here at Hagatnam and wait till you see what’s going to happen in Agat as well.” 

The Chairman of PAG Board of Directors Daniel Tydingco said that this project completed “would serve the community and the specific recreational users.”
“We’re proud to be a part of all the changes and the direction the Governor has charged us with…We hope that everyone enjoys this Marina and all the other changes to come,” said Tydingco.
