The Port of Portland will receive a $1.25 million federal grant to upgrade marine terminal security systems.

The port will use the grant to rebuild key components of the security systems at terminals 4 and 6, port officials announced in a press release.

Specifically, the port will renew antiquated closed circuit television cameras and systems and overall access control systems at terminal gates.

Terminal 4 on the Willamette River handles auto imports and shipping of mineral bulks, while Terminal 6 on the Columbia River handles auto imports and exports, and houses container facilities with five berths and eight rail tracks.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency issued the grant as part of the Port Security Grant Program.
