SAVANNAH — Port officials from Georgia and South Carolina have canceled their January meeting on the states' troubled plans to build a jointly owned port terminal on the Savannah River.

The joint port board had been scheduled to meet next Monday in Savannah. Board members from both states issued a statement Wednesday saying the board won't convene again until April 16 in Charleston, S.C.

They said an updated study on the economic viability of building the shipping terminal isn't ready. The proposed $5 billion port terminal would be located in Jasper County, S.C., across the river from Savannah.

Progress on the joint port has been bogged down for more than a year as Georgia and South Carolina have feuded over a planned $652 million expansion of the Port of Savannah.
