The Port of Savannah is celebrating completion of a nearly year long expansion of its facility for loading and unloading cargo onto trains.
A ribbon-cutting taking place Friday to mark the official opening of the new mason intermodal container transfer facility. The expansion adds 6,000 feet of rail to expand capacity and improve efficiency at the site.
"This is a great advantage to help serve cargo better in the future but
it is also environmentally and economically responsible, so we are excited
about it today," said Curtis Foltz, Georgia Ports Authority executive director.
The Georgia Ports Authority board approved the $6.5 million project last year and construction began in January.
