Both cities are definitely NOT similar. They both have good characteristics about them and are fitting to different types of people. I think the only similarity is they both have river fronts. Correct me if I'm missing something.

The cities are very different...
Savannah is more like New orleans and Augusta is more like Shreveport.

...and Augusta is larger than Shreveport or Baton Rouge.

I-3 should have been built along time ago. The same with I-14 that will connect Augusta, Columbus, and Macon.

Augusta may be larger than Shreveport, but it is definately not larger than Baton Rouge.

according to the latest census figures... the city populations of Shreveport and Augusta are about the same (Shreveport is slightly larger with just over 200,000 ppl)..but the Augusta metro area is larger. Baton Rouge metro is over 770,000 ppl..making it quite a bit bigger than Augusta.

I stand corrected. Next time I'll have to check my stats.

I-3 will be the most traveled interstate in GA outside of I-75. More ppl will use I-3 over I-20 & I-85.
