The only boat dock at the USS Arizona Memorial will receive a $2,012,500 upgrade following an award from the Federal Transit Administration.

The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who were killed when Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

The 184-foot-long memorial structure spans the mid-portion of the sunken battleship and consists of three main sections: the entry room; the assembly room, a central area designed for ceremonies and general observation; and the shrine room, where the names of those killed on the Arizona are engraved on the marble wall, according to the National Park Service.
