The Southeast Georgia Regional Development Authority let the contract for building the rail spur into the Pierce County Industrial Park Wednesday afternoon, February 23.
Adams-Warnock was the successful bidder on the project. Matt Carter, executive director of the Pierce County Industrial Development and Building Authority and a member of the SGRDA, said that Adams-Warnock was the low bidder of four bidders on the project.
Adams-Warnock also will lease land from the SGRDA to provide rail to other tenants in the Pierce County Industrial Park.
The project is being funded with a OneGeorgia grant and by the RDA, which is a four-county joint development authority comprised of Jeff Davis, Appling, Bacon and Pierce. Pierce County joined the joint development authority in 2018.
