HAGATNA, Guam — The U.S. Navy has awarded a contract for utility construction and site improvements for a future  base on Guam.

The Friday announcement comes amid heightened tensions between North Korea and the U.S. just days after the North considered a preemptive missile strike on the strategically important U.S. territory of Guam.

The Navy said the $164.9 million Japanese-funded contract was awarded in support of an international agreement between the U.S. and Japan. The relocation of Marines to the island has been in the works for over a decade.

The contract includes construction of utilities, roads, and infrastructure as well as removal of unexploded ordnance and munitions.
