The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) is focused on making transportation improvements to facilitate the movement of goods to and from the terminals.
The Garden City Terminal is within 6.3 miles of Interstate 16 (East/West) and 5.6 miles of Interstate 95 (North/South). With anticipated growth in containerized cargo and increased truck traffic at the Garden City Terminal, improving connections to the interstates is paramount. The Brampton Road Connector project will serve to improve truck traffic accessing Gate 3 at the Garden City Terminal. Moffatt & Nichol, as the GPA’s program management consultant, is taking the lead in the roadway plan development process.
Moffatt & Nichol provided conceptual design, environmental document (NEPA/GEPA), utility and Class I railroad coordination, preliminary plans, MS4 design and compliance, and final plans. The approximately one-mile roadway on the new location provides much-needed congestion relief for trucks heading into and out of the Garden City Terminal. The new roadway eliminates a highway-rail at-grade crossing, allowing freight free-flow to the terminal from the Main Street/Burnsed Boulevard intersection.
