State Route 10 Loop ( SR 10 Loop, also known as Loop 10, Paul Broun Parkway, or the Athens Perimeter Highway) is a state highway in the form of a beltway around Athens in the U.S. state of Georgia. Except for a single at-grade intersection, it is built to freeway standards. Much of the road is concurrent with other routes (such as U.S. Route 29 (US 29), US 78, US 129, US 441, SR 8, and SR 15) that pass through the Athens area. It also carries the unsigned SR 422. Only US 78 Business, SR 10, and SR 15 Alternate pass through downtown Athens. Inner/outer directions are often used to sign the loop.
