Existing[edit]

Statesboro bypass[edit]


U.S. Highway 301 Bypass
Location: Statesboro, Georgia
Length: 6.9 mi (11.1 km)
Existed: 1990s–present

U.S. Route 301 Bypass (US 301 Bypass), also signed as SR 73 Bypass, is a four-lane bypass of US 301. It runs south–north east and south of the city of Statesboro, Georgia. US 301 bypass, along with US 25 Bypass, makes up the Veterans Memorial Parkway, which forms a near circle around the city.

The bypass begins south of the city at the intersection with US 25 Bypass. It runs east along the perimeter of Georgia Southern University. It follows the perimeter of the university, turning northeast towards Fair Road (SR 67), where it breaks off from the university perimeter and turns northward. After turning north, the bypass intersects with Northside Drive (US 80/SR 26), SR 24, and finally US 301 north.

The Veterans Memorial Parkway was commissioned in the early 1990s. Both US 25 Bypass and US 301 Bypass were completed at the same time as two-lane highways. Several years later, US 25 Bypass was widened to become a four-lane divided highway. In March 2007, work began on the widening of US 301 Bypass. The bypass was completed in October 2008.

US 301 Bypass, commonly referred to simply as "the bypass", has become one of the most congested roads in Statesboro. The widening of the road, which was supposed to be completed by 2006, was not completed due to a faulty contractor. A new contractor was hired by the Georgia Department of Transportation, and work began in March 2007. The bypass has become an attractive place for new businesses, and has been crucial in the growth and expansion of the greater Statesboro area.

U.S. Route 301 Truck was a truck bypass of a segment of U.S. Route 301 in New Castle County, Delaware. It was created in the 1980s to provide a truck bypass of the St. Georges Bridge for US 301 when structural issues with the bridge forced a weight restriction. U.S. Route 301 Truck followed Delaware Route 71 and Delaware Route 896 north from US 301 in Mount Pleasant. It then crossed over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal on the Summit Bridge. The truck route continued north on DE 896 to Glasgow, where it turned east on U.S. Route 40 and followed it to State Road, where it ended at U.S. Route 13 and U.S. Route 301. In 1992, US 301 was realigned to head north over the Summit Bridge to end at US 40 in Glasgow. This rerouting made Truck US 301 obsolete, however signs remained until 2001 along US 40.
