Georgia 136
Georgia 136 skims the southern reaches of the Appalachian Mountains in extreme northern Georgia. This suite of photos reveals some of the scenery encountered on the Talking Rock to Emma stretch of highway in Pickens County. For the most part the roadway is vastly undeveloped with only a scattering of homes along the way. Two scenic pull-offs are found along the route. Photo taken 08/22/03.
Haze settles in over the mountains of Pickens County as the August afternoon draws to a close. This vista is one of several encountered along the winding two lane highway. Photos taken 08/22/03.
Georgia 183
An end shield is posted for the southern terminus of Georgia 183 (Elliot Family Parkway) at Georgia 53 west of the town of Dawsonville. Georgia 183 provides an alternate to Georgia 136 and Georgia 9 from Cartecay to Dawsonville. The community of Juno is situated midway between Georgia 53 and the community of Emma along Elliot Family Parkway. Photo taken 08/22/03.
Georgia 219
The first northbound reassurance of Georgia 219, posted along River Road within the city of Columbus. River Road is one of two north-south arterials between Downtown Columbus and U.S. 80 (J.R. Allen Parkway). Photo taken 08/22/03.
The intersection of Georgia 219 northbound with Georgia 85 (Manchester Expressway) within the city of Columbus. The Manchester Expressway travels east to Interstate 185 and U.S. 27 Alternate near Columbus Metropolitan Airport. Westward Georgia 85 travels to 2nd Avenue and the south end of Georgia 22 Spur. Photo taken 08/22/03.
U.S. 80 intersects Georgia 219 via a parclo interchange at Exit 2 of the J.R. Allen Parkway. The east-west freeway links north Columbus with Phenix City, Alabama to the west and Manchester to the east. Georgia 22 cosigns with U.S. 80 from the state line eastward to the city of Macon. Photo taken 08/22/03.
Georgia 300
Georgia 300 constitutes the Florida-Georgia Parkway between the city of Albany (pop. 76,939) and Interstate 75 near Cordele (pop. 11,608). The Florida-Georgia Parkway follows U.S. 19 north from the Sunshine State to Thomasville (pop. 18,162), Camilla (pop. 5,669), and Albany. Pictured here is the diamond interchange of Interstate 75 (Exit 99) with the northern terminus of Georgia 300. The bridge itself is wide enough to accomodate multiple lanes but currently is only striped for one. Photo taken 01/18/04.
End shield for Georgia 300 posted at the Interstate 75 northbound on-ramp. A county road continues eastward to Georgia 90. The alignment of Georgia 300 between the freeway and Albany is divided with four lanes. The 34-mile route was originally considered for a never built Interstate 175. The spur would link Interstate 75 with southwest Georgia's largest city. The Florida-Georgia Parkway is a compromise for the lack of freeway. Photo taken 01/18/04.

Looking from the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Phenix City, AL, is the skyline of Columbus and this arched bridge crossing. This span carries Dillingham Street across the Chattahoochee River into the city of Columbus. A Norfolk-Southern railroad crossing crosses the waterway in the background. Photo taken 10/15/99.
