SAVANNAH, Ga., March. 9, 2022 – In response to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announcement that deepening is complete for the Savannah Harbor, Georgia Ports Authority Executive Director Griff Lynch has issued the following statement:

S. Army Corps of Engineers deserve our gratitude for their hard work and integrity in seeing this project through. Read More…
