Historic images of Georgia Ports Authority

Seventy-two years and counting

The Georgia Ports Authority was created on March 9, 1945, by an act of the Georgia General Assembly.  Since the authority was formed, the Port of Savannah has become the fourth busiest in the U.S., while Brunswick is one of the nation’s busiest ports for vehicle imports and exports. To celebrate our anniversary, we’ve gathered a sampling of images as a tribute to the visual history of the ports at Savannah and Brunswick. If you have historic images of Georgia’s ports, we would love to see them. You can email them to egoldman@gaports.com.

Port plan to reduce Garden City train crossings

Savannah, Ga. – March 1, 2017 – At a public meeting Tuesday, representatives from Garden City, Chatham County and the Georgia Ports Authority discussed a proposal that would greatly reduce the use of rail crossings around Garden City Terminal, while increasing capacity and jobs for the local community.

The meeting focused on installation of an overpass at State Route 25. The road improvement will take vehicular traffic over planned new rail lines and Pipemakers Canal. It is proposed in conjunction with an on-terminal project that will double GPA’s rail capacity to 1 million containers per year. The new port infrastructure will remove the need to stop trains off terminal to switch rail cars, an activity which has impacted traffic on commuter routes.
