Abstract : The deepened channel design for the Savannah Harbor, Georgia, impacts ship maneuverability, underkeel clearance, and natural channel restrictions. There are also two changes affecting ship navigation: (1) the permanent opening of the tidal gate of Back River, and (2) the permanent closure of New Cut. The deepening impact on maneuvering in the Kings Island Turning Basin was minimal; however, the lower southeastern corner of Marsh Island Turning Basin, the bight upstream of the LNG Terminal, and the S-turn at the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW) should be widened. The widening in the bend downstream of the AIWW can be decreased.
