Next Thursday, Sept. 28, City Council will vote at its regular meeting 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, a spokesperson says, the City of Savannah will then send the resolution to the Governor, the Georgia Department of Transportation, and the Chatham County delegation encouraging them to follow through with the name change to make the name change legally binding.

"In addition to renaming the bridge, Mayor DeLoach will create a task force of Savannah historians, led by City staff, to took a different options to honor all those who served during the Civil War, while following state laws," the spokesperson concludes.
