Army Undersecretary Visits USACE’s Savannah District

Undersecretary of the Army Patrick Murphy met with the USACE’s Savannah District leaders on August 11, 2016.

Murphy took an aerial tour of the Savannah Harbor as part of his visit to Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia.

The Savannah District is responsible for maintaining the Savannah harbor and is in the process of deepening it an additional 5 feet to better accommodate larger, post-Panamax container ships, as part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP).

The SHEP will deepen the Savannah harbor and the associated shipping channel from an authorized depth of 42 feet to 47 feet.

This deepening will allow larger, more efficient container vessels to use the East Coast’s second busiest container harbor with fewer weight and tidal restrictions.

Inner harbor work will also include constructing three bend wideners and two meeting areas, and enlarging the Kings Island Turning Basin at the Garden City Terminal.
