Highway system

State Route 155 (SR 155) is a 57.2-mile-long (92.1 km) state highway that runs south-to-north through portions of Spalding, Henry, Rockdale, and DeKalb counties in the north-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia.

Route description[edit]

Spalding County[edit]

SR 155 begins at an intersection with US 19/US 41/SR 3/SR 7 in Griffin, in Spalding County. This also marks the southern terminus of US 19 Business/US 41 Business. US 19 Business/US 41 Business/SR 155 head concurrent to the northeast to an intersection with SR 16 in the central part of town. They cross a Norfolk Southern Railway until SR 155 departs to the east. It heads northeast, and turns north on McDonough Road. It heads northward and enters Henry County.[1]

Henry and Rockdale Counties[edit]

SR 155 meets Interstate 75 (I-75), just before it enters McDonough. In town it intersects US 23/SR 42. In the main part of town is SR 20. The two routes run concurrent for about a block. Then, SR 81 runs concurrent with it for a short while. SR 155 departs to the north, and intersects SR 138 just before it reaches the Henry–Rockdale county line. It runs along the county line until just past Panola Mountain State Park, where it re-enters Henry County for a short while. After that, it crosses into DeKalb County.[1]

DeKalb County[edit]

SR 155 continues to the north-northwest to Snapfinger and turns west on Flat Shoals Parkway. It curves to the northwest and has an interchange with I-285 on the southeastern edge of Panthersville. The highway heads through the town and meets I-20 on the northeast edge of the town. In the East Lake neighborhood, it intersects SR 154. In Decatur, it has a brief concurrency with US 278/SR 10. In the northwest part of Decatur is US 23/US 29/SR 8. East of North Druid Hills is an intersection with SR 236. On the North Druid Hills–Brookhaven city line is an interchange with I-85. SR 155 curves to the northeast to meet its northern terminus, an intersection with US 23/SR 13, south of Chamblee.[1]
