TILGHMAN ISLAND, Md. (AP)- Maryland emergency management officials have received funding to construct a radar and video tower on Tilghman Island.

Officials expect to build the 140-foot tower at an inn that the state owns and leases out as a conference facility.

The tower, which will hold a radar unit, surveillance camera and microwave antenna, is intended to track commercial shipping and other traffic approaching or leaving the Port of Baltimore.

The state emergency management agency received funding for the tower through a federal port security grant program.
