Construction ground breaking for new Guam troop facilities expected in 2010

Date Posted: 2008-03-11

Details are still sketchy, but the American military says new facilities construction must begin on Guam by 2010 if deadlines are to be met on relocating U.S. Marines from Okinawa.
The Joint Guam Program Office has told a gathering of the Guam Industry Forum there will be decisions made and a plan announced later this month. More than 1,300 attendees heard the retired Marine Corps major general who’s heading the Program Office promise “we are setting the stage for construction to begin in 2010.” David Bice explained the upcoming buildup will involve bringing almost 19,000 additional service members to Guam, and an even larger number of dependents.
The current 14,000 military population on Guam will see an influx of about 8,000 Marines and their families coming from Okinawa. Bice’s briefing was for the Guam businessmen expected to be potential bidders on the massive infrastructure construction projects. They included contractors, builders and other business leaders from both Japan and the U.S., along with government officials who will be involved in the $10.2 billion project.
