DOUBLES CAPACITY

The Port of Savannah’s Mason Mega Rail Terminal, funded in part by a $44 million federal FASTLANE grant, will double the Port of Savannah’s rail capacity to 1 million container lifts per year. The project will add 97,000 feet of new rail at Garden City Terminal, for a total of 179,000 feet. It will increase the number of working tracks from 8 to 18.

EXTENDS REACH

Mason Mega Rail will combine the current on-dock CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern rail terminals into one facility, providing each railroad with at least nine 2,700-foot working tracks. The expanded rail yard will be served by eight rail-mounted gantry cranes. The RMGs will each span nine tracks for improved efficiency moving containers to and from trains.

IMPROVES FLOW

Transitioning more cargo from trucks to trains helps prevent highway congestion. Expanded on-terminal capacity will allow GPA to bring all rail switching onto the port, improving vehicle traffic flow in neighboring communities.
