For Immediate ReleaseDate: September 22, 2017
Next Thursday, Sept. 28th, City Council will vote to adopt a resolution to rename the Talmadge Bridge. Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach is recommending renaming it “The Savannah Bridge”.
If the resolution is approved by Council, the City of Savannah will then send the resolution to the Governor, the Georgia Department of Transportation, and our Chatham County delegation encouraging them to follow through with the name change.
In addition to renaming the bridge, Mayor DeLoach will create a task force of Savannah historians, led by City staff, to look at different options to honor all those who served during the Civil War, while following state laws.
