Expect More Ships Soon On The Savannah River!

The Georgia Ports Authority today unanimously approved the acquisition of 1,518 acres of land on the Savannah River for the planned Jasper Ocean Terminal.

The South Carolina State Ports Authority Board is set to consider a similar resolution at its regular meeting in Charleston tomorrow.

The port authorities in Georgia and South Carolina will share ownership of the site. The property, which is in South Carolina but currently owned by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), will be paid for and owned jointly by the SCSPA and the GPA. The land transfer could close by July 28, the Georgia Ports Authority said.
