U.S. Highway 441

U.S. 441 North
Georgia Loop 10 Outer and U.S. 129-441 & Georgia 15 north split with U.S. 78 eastbound at Exit 13. U.S. 78 & Georgia 10 travel Lexington Road to Athens/Ben Epps Airport eastward to the Clarke County line. The pair continue from there along Athens Road to Crawford (pop. 807) and Lexington (pop. 239) in 16 miles. U.S. 78 Business enters the fold from O'Conee Street and downtown Athens from the northwest. Photo taken 01/17/04.
A non-freeway segment of Georgia Loop 10 exists between U.S. 78 & Georgia 10 (Exit 13) and Exit 11A (Old Hull Road). The Athens Perimeter Highway (U.S. 129-441 & Georgia 15 north) transition back into a freeway ahead of the junction with U.S. 29 (Exit 11). Pictured here is a soon to be replaced diagrammatical overhead for the half-diamond interchange with Old Hull Road (Exit 11A) and the U.S. 29 entry point onto the Athens Perimeter Highway (Exit 11). Photo taken 01/17/04.
To remain on Georgia Loop 10 Outer and U.S. 129-441 & Georgia 15 northbound at Exit 11 (U.S. 29), traffic must utilize a loop ramp. The mainline of the Athens Perimeter Highway otherwise defaults onto U.S. 29 northbound for Danielsville (pop. 457). Photo taken 01/17/04.
U.S. 29 southbound merges onto Georgia Loop 10 Outer and U.S. 129-441 & Georgia 15 northbound at Exit 11. Situated just west of there is the Exit 10 diamond interchange with Danielsville Road & North Avenue. North Avenue travels 1.5 miles out of downtown to Georgia Loop 10, becoming Danielsville Road and Georgia 106 in the process. Photo taken 01/17/04.
An auxiliary lane adds to Georgia Loop 10 & U.S. 29-129-441 and Georgia 15 fray between Exits 10 (Danielsville Road & North Avenue) and Exit 11 (Commerce Road). The upcoming diamond interchange sees U.S. 441 & Georgia 15 north part ways with the Athens Perimeter Highway for Nicholson and Commerce. Photo taken 01/17/04.
Georgia 365, which is all but hidden between Gainesville (pop. 25,578) 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 (pop. 1,248) to the west and joins the U.S. 123 & Georgia 365 mix eastward to Toccoa (pop. 9,323). Lavonia (pop. 1,827) 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 (pop. 3,674). Georgia 385 overlaps with Business U.S. 441 northward through Demorest (pop. 1,465) 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 (pop. 1,907). 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 (pop. 100,266) and Interstate 85 (near Commerce pop. 5,292). The University of Georgia home is located 44 miles to the south of this junction. Photo taken 10/15/01.
East of the Danielsville Road and North Avenue interchange (Exit 10) is the U.S. 29 northbound split from the Athens Perimeter Highway. A three-quarter cloverleaf interchange sees U.S. 29 depart via a loop ramp from the left as Georgia Loop 10 Inner and U.S. 129-441 & Georgia 15 south turn southward. Exit 11 is signed with the Georgia 72 control point of Elberton (pop. 4,743). Georgia 72 (Hull Road) begins 1.5 miles to the north. Photo taken 01/17/04.
