State Route 126 (SR 126) is a 54.9-mile-long (88.4 km) state highway that runs northwest-to-southeast through portions of Bleckley, Dodge, Laurens, and Wheeler counties in the central part of the U.S. state of Georgia.

Route description[edit]

SR 126 begins at an intersection with SR 26 (East Dykes Street) in Cochran, in Bleckley County. It heads east to an intersection with US 23/SR 87 on the eastern edge of the city. The highway passes through rural areas of the county, passing Cochran Airport, and enters Dodge County. In the county, the road has a brief concurrency with SR 257 in Chester. In Laurens County, it meets SR 117 (Main Street) in Cadwell. To the southwest, it begins a concurrency with SR 46 to the east. The two highways head northeast to an intersection with US 319/US 441/SR 31. The two then begin a curve to the southeast. Just over 1 mile (1.6 km) later, they split, with SR 46 heading east-northeast and SR 126 heading southeast. It enters Wheeler County, and has an intersection with US 280/SR 30. The road continues to the southeast, until it meets its southeastern terminus, an intersection with SR 19 north of Lumber City.[1]

SR 126 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]
