The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) invites your comments on a project to construct the Berth 4 at the Colonel’s Island Terminal (CIT) in Glynn County, Georgia on the Brunswick River.   The purpose of this announcement is to present the proposed project, and ask for your comments, questions, or concerns.   Note that no formal public meeting is proposed.  All of your comments will be taken into consideration as the project continues. Please share this with your neighbors who may have missed the announcement. 

Project Description
The proposed project will create a new berth (Berth 4) along the shoreline of the river, downstream of the existing berths.  The project will also strengthen the adjacent Berth 1, and provide connectors between the berths, as well as from Berth 4 to the shore. 

Why is the project needed?
As a dedicated Roll On/Roll Off (Ro/Ro) facility, the CIT is the second busiest port in the U.S. for total Ro/Ro cargo and second busiest for Ro/Ro imports. Owned and operated by the Georgia Ports Authority, the facility has three berths, and three on-terminal auto processors. The new CIT Berth 4 will provide enhanced capabilities for the CIT to handle the ship demand both current and future.  The new berth facility will strengthen the regional transportation network in this area of Georgia, create new opportunities for employment and economic growth in the region. The current configuration of the CIT is challenged by the current and future market demands, therefore the need for Berth 4.
