GLADSTONE, Ore. – The Port of Portland plans to improve security devices at two marine terminals after receiving $1.25 million from the federal Port Security Grant Program.

The Port of Portland announced the grant Thursday.

The Port of Portland said the funding will go toward updating outdated security systems at terminals 4 and 6. Specifically, the money will help replace old security cameras and access control systems at terminal gates.

Portland is one of 33 U.S. ports to receive grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Terminal 4 on the Willamette River facilitates auto imports and bulk mineral shipping.

Terminal 6 on the Columbia River is also used for auto imports and exports and it houses container facilities.
