Georgia 14 Connector - South Fulton Parkway

South Fulton Parkway extends west from the Perimeter Highway (I-285) to the Chattahoochee River and the Douglas and Carroll County line and beyond. 2.8 miles of the highway is state maintained as SR 14 Connector, The jurisdictional change was advocated by the South Fulton Parkway Alliance as the best solution for future development and maintenance. The suffix changed from Spur to Connector in 2007.
