U.S. Highway 441


U.S. 441 was relocated around Milledgeville on a 7.1 mile bypass as approved by AASHTO on December 2, 1988. U.S. 129 combines with U.S. 441 north from Eatonton to Madison, Watkinsville and Athens. The northernmost portion of their overlap was realigned onto the Athens Perimeter Highway with U.S. 29 to bypass Downtown to the east per AASHTO on June 25, 1979.

North at Commerce, AASHTO approved the realignment of U.S. 441 onto a four-lane bypass to the east on June 4, 1990. The first of several changes made for U.S. 441 between Baldwin and Clarkesville took place in 1972, with the opening of a new four-lane roadway to the west of Cornelia. The new route doubled as U.S. 23, with the old alignment through Cornelia redesignated as U.S. 441 Business. AASHTO signed off on both changes on June 20, 1972.

U.S. 23 would later be realigned north of Baldwin onto a new expressway (Georgia 365) extending northeast from Gainesville. Completion of the four-lane route north around Clarkesville included shifting U.S. 441 east to a longer overlap with U.S. 23.

U.S. 441 north
Georgia 365, which is all but hidden between Gainesville and U.S. 123, reappears at this sign bridge for the eastbound beginning of U.S. 123. U.S. 23 & 441 and Georgia 15 continue their marriage northwards to the Tennessee State Line as Georgia 365 bids farewell via U.S. 123 eastward to the South Carolina State Line. Georgia 17 enters the scene from Clarkesville to the west and joins the U.S. 123 & Georgia 365 mix eastward to Toccoa. Lavonia is displayed on the right-hand panel for the southbound control city of Georgia 17. This town is located along Georgia 17 at Interstate 85. Photo taken 10/15/01.
U.S. 441 south
U.S. 23/441 and Georgia 15 southbound reassurance shields within the U.S. 123 terminus interchange. The overpass funnels traffic from U.S. 123 south to U.S. 23 & 441 south. Overall U.S. 123 is a short route linking northeastern Georgia with Greenville, South Carolina. Photo taken 10/15/01.
The rural splendor of northeast Georgia is evident in this southbound U.S. 23& 441 and Georgia 15 scene approaching the junction of Business U.S. 441 near Cornelia. Georgia 385 overlaps with Business U.S. 441 northward through Demorest and Clarkesville. Business U.S. 441 follows old U.S. 441 through the town of Cornelia with Georgia 105. Georgia 105 links U.S. 23 & 441 with the town of Cleveland. Photo taken 10/15/01.
Button copy signage placed before the parting of U.S. 441/Georgia 15 from U.S. 23/Georgia 365. Georgia 365 remains the counterpart for U.S. 23 between Buford and U.S. 123. U.S. 441 and Georgia 15 travel southward toward the city of Athens and Interstate 85 near Commerce. The University of Georgia home is located 44 miles to the south of this junction.
