South Carolina Ports Authority wants more money

By The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Ports Authority wants $5 million for a new terminal along the Savannah River.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that ports CEO Jim Newsome says the Jasper County facility will be needed when the main terminal in Charleston reaches capacity.

The Jasper County port is a joint venture with the Georgia Ports Authority and would be constructed on the South Carolina side of the river. The additional money would go for design work and obtaining permits for the effort.

Georgia plans to contribute $5 million for the coming year's work.

Newsome says there won't be any more room in the Charleston area once a new terminal expected to be ready in 2032 is completed.

The port in Jasper County is expected to cost $5 billion.
