State Route 101 (SR 101) is a 43.5-mile-long (70.0 km) state highway in the northwestern part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It travels in a south-north orientation between the Atlanta metropolitan area and the Alabama state line. Its routing passes through portions of Carroll, Paulding, Polk, and Floyd counties. It connects the Villa Rica and Rome areas of the state.
SR 101 begins at an interchange with Interstate 20 (I-20) in Villa Rica, in Carroll County, where it is concurrent with SR 61 for approximately 0.5 miles (0.80 km) north until it intersects with US /SR 8. It heads northwest into Paulding County. The only major intersection in the county is an intersection with SR 113/SR 120 (Buchanan Highway), in the unincorporated community of Union. In Polk County, the road meets US 278/SR 6, southwest of Braswell. The three highways head concurrent to the northwest, and enter Rockmart. They bypass the main part of town to the east, northeast, and north. At Piedmont Avenue, SR 101 splits off to the north-northwest. This intersection also marks the eastern terminus of US 278 Business/SR 6 Business. SR 101 continues to the northwest and enters Floyd County. It curves to an almost-due-north orientation and enters Rome. In the city, it intersects US 411/SR 20, just east of Georgia Northwestern Technical College. The route heads north and curves to the northwest to intersect US 27/SR 1/SR 53 (Turner McCall Boulevard). It crosses over the Etowah and Oostanaula rivers. It passes Barron Stadium and Floyd Medical Center, before it meets its northern terminus, an intersection with US 27/SR 1/SR 20, farther along in the city.
