Infrastructure projects for the Port of Savannah have been ongoing nearly nonstop for years. Between the channel deepening and expansion of terminals, the port has grown immensely to accommodate bigger and more ships. Much of that freight moves by rail away from the port but some also by truck, creating increased traffic. A new grant pushed by Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA 1) from the Department of Transportation will help to ease a bit of this increased traffic.

Funded via the Railroad Crossing Elimination Grant Program, $1.87 million will help to eliminate eleven crossings on CSX and Norfolk Southern rail lines. The new plans will allow for longer trains and also make access easier for residents of neighborhoods that have been divided by rail lines.
