State Route 109 (SR 109) is a 71.0-mile-long (114.3 km) state highway that runs west-to-east through portions of Heard, Troup, Meriwether, Pike, and Lamar counties in the western part of the U.S. state of Georgia.

Route description[edit]

SR 109 begins at the Alabama state line, where the roadway continues as CR 20, west of Glenn. The road heads eastward, until it enters town. Then, it heads southeast into Troup County. Farther in the county, it meets the eastern terminus of SR 109 Spur (Roanoke Road). At this intersection, the highway turns left to cross over West Point Lake. It enters LaGrange and intersects US 29/SR 14. In the main part of town, the three routes meet US 27/SR 1/SR 219. At this intersection US 29/SR 14 depart to the north, along US 27/SR 1/SR 219 north. On the east end of town, it has an interchange with Interstate 85 (I-85). Then, it crosses over, but does not interchange with I-185. In Greenville, the highway meets US 27 Alternate/SR 18/SR 41, as well as SR 100 (North Depot Street). Here, US 27 Alternate/SR 18/SR 41/SR 109 run concurrent around the city square. SR 18 runs concurrent with SR 109 to the east. Just before leaving town, they intersect SR 109 Spur (Gay Road). In Woodbury, is an intersection with SR 85 Alternate (Whitehouse Parkway). Then, they meet SR 74/SR 85. At this intersection, SR 74 joins the concurrency. Just before entering Molena, SR splits off on Crest Highway. In town, SR 18 splits off to the north-northeast, while SR 109 heads east. The road heads northeast to a concurrency with US 19/SR 3, just west-southwest of Meansville. SR 109 heads through town and meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR 18, located between Zebulon and Barnesville.

SR 109 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]
