The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project gained more traction in March.

Several features are on schedule to be completed by the end of 2017, including the First Dike Raising (June); Raw Water Storage Impoundment (July); CSS Georgia Recovery (Sept.); Dissolved Oxygen Injection System (Dec.); and the Sediment Basin Tide Gate Removal (Dec.).

Entrance Channel Dredging, which is currently 53 percent complete, is expected to wrap up in July 2018.

Other features, such as McCoy’s Cut, the New Savannah Bluff Lock & Dam Fish Passage and Inner Harbor Dredging are still in the design phase.
