Georgia DOT Rejects Jasper Port Bid

The proposed multimillion-dollar port on the South Carolina side of the Savannah River now faces yet another roadblock. Jasper County leaders say the Georgia Department of Transportation rejected their $8.5 million offer to purchase the property.

Earlier this week, the county filed a notice of condemnation to condemn the property, in the hopes of turning it into a port. But the legal battle heated up when the South Carolina Ports Authority filed a lawsuit against them to block their efforts.

We will of course keep you posted.
