A plan to refurbish the Navy's government-run shipyards could cost billions of dollars more than expected, a recent report from the Government Accountability Office concluded. Navy experts say the results show how some important public infrastructure projects have been neglected for decades, increasing the long-term cost of maintaining them.

The Navy's 20-year Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Plan is meant to rebuild and modernize government-run shipyards at four U.S. ports where nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers are repaired and maintained: Norfolk, Virginia; Kittery, Maine; Puget Sound in Washington state; and Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. https://www.stripes.com/news/navy/navy-infrastructure-plan-will-cost-billions-more-than-expected-gao-report-says-1.609199
