Augusta Regional AirportEdit

Augusta is served by Augusta Regional Airport, formerly known as "Bush Field" (and still referred to as such on highway signs). It is located approximately 5.6 miles (9.0 km) south of downtown, on Doug Barnard Parkway. It is a relatively small airport, especially when compared to more major airports, such as Atlanta's Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It has one concrete and one asphalt runway.[1] It opened in 1941 as a training facility for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC; the predecessor of the United States Air Force).[2] It became the commercial airport for the city in 1950.[2] In 2000, the facility was renamed "Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field".[2]

Daniel FieldEdit

Daniel Field is a public use airport. It is located approximately 2.5 miles (4.0 km) west of downtown, at the intersection of Highland Avenue and Wrightsboro Road. This airport is owned by the City of Augusta. It has two asphalt runways.[3] It was dedicated in late 1927. During World War II, it also served as a training facility of the USAAC, and was known as "Daniel Army Airfield". At the end of 1945, it was returned to civilian use.

Rail serviceEdit

The January 2008 draft of the Freight Profile for the Augusta Regional Transportation Study indicates that rail cargo accounts for 7% of all freight in the region by weight (2006 TRANSEARCH). Some of the leading commodities shipped out of Augusta are clay, concrete, glass, and stone products. The leading commodity terminating in the area is lumber and wood products.[85]

At-grade railroad crossings are located on many roads throughout the city. The crossings have been a part of city life for many years. Solutions have been sought to reduce the inevitable conflicts between railroad, motor vehicle, and pedestrian traffic. The availability of rail service is a major attraction for new industry and maintaining existing industry.[85]

Passenger serviceEdit

Passenger rail service is currently not available in Augusta. Its last long distance passenger train was the Southern Railway's Washington-Aiken-Augusta Special, which had its last run in 1966.[86] Other companies serving the city were the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and the Central of Georgia Railway.[87] In 1999, the Georgia Transportation Board approved a long-range plan to provide inter-city passenger rail service between Atlanta and other major cities across the state.[85]

Freight serviceEdit

There are two freight providers: Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) and CSX.[85]

Norfolk Southern RailwayEdit

The NS mainline track, known as the R-Line, enters the city from the north, crossing the Savannah River and traveling through downtown on the right-of-way of 6th Street, and is known as the Augusta District. The mainline continues to the southeast toward Savannah. NS has two railroad yards in Augusta: the main classification yard is approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) south of downtown. Its second yard, the Nixon Yard, is south of Augusta Regional Airport near the International Paper plant.[85]

CSX TransportationEdit

The CSX mainline travels through the city in what is essentially an east–west direction. This line, known partially as the Augusta and McCormick subdivisions, connects Augusta to Spartanburg, South Carolina and Savannah. There is a second CSX line, partially known as the Georgia Subdivision, and was formerly owned by Georgia Railroad and Banking Company, is a connection to Atlanta. CSX has two railroad yards in the city. The main railroad yard is located off of Laney Walker Boulevard southeast of downtown. The yard covers approximately 117 acres (47 ha). It consists of an inbound receiving yard and an outbound classification yard. Its second yard, the Harrisonville Yard, is located on 48 acres (19 ha) between Olive Road and Wrightsboro Road.[85]

Water servicesEdit

Augusta Canal toursEdit

On the Augusta Canal, there are boat tours. These tours are provided using a Petersburg boat, similar to those used on the Savannah River in the 19th century. They show the textile mills, the Confederate Powderworks, and two of Georgia's only remaining 18th century houses.[88]

MarinasEdit

Augusta has two marinas, the Augusta Riverfront Marina and the Riverwalk Marina, also known as the 5th Street Marina. The Riverfront Marina has the following amenities: access to the riverfront, boat slip rentals, boat ramp, and picnic shelter. The Riverwalk Marina has the following amenities: a gift shop, public boat slip, boat slip rentals, playground, picnic area, and fuel service.[89] Riverfront Marina is located on Riverfront Drive, in the East Augusta portion of the city, east of Olde Town.[90] Riverwalk Marina is off of 5th Street, just before it crosses over the Savannah River.[91]
