A new port project that will link northeast Georgia to the Port of Savannah is getting a big grant from the federal government.
The project which will link the Gainesville area northeast of Atlanta and the docks in Savannah will see a 2 million dollar federal grant.
US Senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock announced the grant, which will bring much needed road and infrastructure improvements to open the Northeast Georgia Inland Port in Hall County. The new rail line is normally a 300 mile trip by truck.
Georgia has two similar inland rail ports in Murray and Crisp counties.
