Boating groups, commercial interests, and representatives from various agencies queried USCG and Georgia Department of Transportation officials during a virtual meeting on September 15 and 21, 2023, expressing concerns about the work schedule due to the number of hours and days that the AICW would be closed. The revised schedule is the result of all stakeholders agreeing on the most appropriate courses of action for the construction work and allowable transit times through the channel at the bridge.
