November 27 - The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) has approved an infrastructure development project that will aid the handling of high and heavy cargo at the gateway.

A Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) surface will be laid at the gateway, which is more suitable for heavy traffic and loads endured by paved surfaces at shipping terminals. GPA has committed just under USD5 million to the high-density paving project.

According to Curtis Foltz, executive director, GPA, "This project will provide greater capacity in moving oversized roll-on/roll off cargo at Ocean Terminal."
