U.S. Highway 341

U.S. 341 travels 226 miles, wholly within Georgia from Brunswick and the Golden Isles to Jesup, Hazlehurst, Eastman Perry, Fort Valley and Blairsville. U.S. 341 doubles as the Golden Isles Parkway northwest to Perry.

Northward from Musella, alignment changes approved by AASHTO on October 14, 1967 included a new straighter route from Roberts north to Musella. Old U.S. 341 parallels the highway to the east along Salem Church Road and then Musella Road. Continuing toward the rural city of Culloden, Old 341 West represents the former route west of U.S. 341. U.S. 341 bypasses Culloden to the east, overtaking old U.S. 341 as it leads north along Main Street. 2.4 miles further north, another new section of U.S. 341 was built in 1967. This 1.4 mile long linear route eliminated the curve through Strouds, with SR 83 extending south along the former route to U.S. 341, and Strouds Road representing old U.S. 341 to the northwest.
