LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION:  Navigation.  The study area includes the Brunswick Harbor, located in the lower part of southeastern Georgia on the Atlantic Coast, south of Savannah.  The study will investigate the possible harbor improvements to the Brunswick Harbor Federal Navigation Project, Glynn County, Georgia, which could be justified for the purposes of increasing transportation efficiency and improving vessel safety and handling concerns in specific confined areas of the harbor.  The study will incorporate environmental and economic considerations associated with the widening of the existing bend at Cedar Hammock, extension of the northwest side of the existing South Brunswick River Turning Basin, and addition of a vessel meeting area.
