State Route 141 (SR 141) is a 28.0-mile-long (45.1 km) state highway that runs southwest-to-northeast in the northwest part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It connects the Buckhead area of Atlanta with Cumming. Its routing exists within portions of Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Forsyth counties.

Route description[edit]

SR 141 begins at an intersection with US 19/SR 9 (Roswell Road NE) in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, in Fulton County. It travels to the northeast to an intersection with SR 237 (Piedmont Road NE). Just after that intersection, it goes over, but does not have an interchange with SR 400 (T. Harvey Mathis Parkway). Immediately after is the southern terminus of SR 141 Connector (Lenox Road NE). The highway passes just northwest of the Buckhead Heights neighborhood, crosses into DeKalb County, and passes through Brookhaven. SR 141 passes Oglethorpe University and the Peachtree Golf Club, just before passing through Chamblee. In Doraville, it has an intersection with SR 13 Connector and an interchange with Interstate 285 (I-285). The road becomes a freeway on the northeast of the interchange, served by a pair of one-way frontage roads with "Texas U-turns"; it has a few exits along its length. It enters Gwinnett County near the middle of the freeway; near the end of the freeway is SR 140. It passes through Peachtree Corners. Then, it crosses over the Chattahoochee River back into Fulton County. It travels through Johns Creek and meets SR 120 (Abbotts Bridge Road). Northeast of there, it enters Forsyth County. The roadway curves to the northwest and then to the north. It has an interchange with US 19/SR 400 (Hospitality Highway), southwest of Cumming. Just after this interchange, it meets its northern terminus, an intersection with SR 9 (Atlanta Highway).[1]

All of SR 141 from its southern terminus in Buckhead to a point southwest of Duluth is part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]

Peachtree Industrial Boulevard is a road in the U.S. state of Georgia that runs from just north of Chamblee, and ends in Buford. For approximately four-fifths of its length, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard is not coextensive with SR 141. The section between I-285 and SR 140 (Jimmy Carter Boulevard) and overlapping SR 141 in Norcross is a freeway. North of SR 140, Peachtree Industrial Boulevard splits from SR 141 and continues to the northeast as a 4+ lane highway with center median, passing through the cities of Peachtree Corners, Duluth, Suwanee, Sugar Hill, and Buford. This portion is maintained by Gwinnett County.[4][5] In the future, the county plans a grade-separation upgrade for the portion between the SR 141 split and Sugarloaf Parkway.[6]
