Hall Co. to host community meeting on Inland Port


“Hall County Government will host the Georgia Ports Authority’s community information meeting on the Northeast Georgia Inland Port project on Tuesday, October 17, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Airline Baptist Church in Gainesville.

The informational meeting will begin with an open house from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., where officials will share information on the project, including future road projects that are being planned in anticipation of the Inland Port.

From 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., the Georgia Ports Authority will give a brief presentation on the Inland Port followed by an opportunity for questions and discussions with the public.

The Northeast Georgia Inland Port will provide a direct rail link to the Port of Savannah. The facility will offset 600 roundtrip highway miles for every container that is moved by railway, which will reduce congestion on Georgia highways, transportation costs and delivery times.

For more information, please contact Wesley Barrell, General Manager of Inland Ports at Georgia Ports Authority, at [email protected]. “
