SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Georgia Ports Authority Board is moving forward with projects to increase the Port of Savannah’s container capacity by 20 percent.

The board approved a $205 million expansion called the Peak Capacity project. Part of the expansion is adding room for more containers at the port terminal - boosting its annual capacity by 650,000 container units.

The port authority says it also plans a berth renovation by 2023 to allow for a million more container units per year.

The Georgia Ports Authority just reported its busiest February on record in Savannah.

Container cargo traffic in Savannah is up 7 point 2 percent last month compared to a year earlier.
