State Route 18 (SR 18) is a 148-mile-long (238 km) state highway that runs west-to-east through portions of Troup, Harris, Meriwether, Pike, Lamar, Monroe, Jones, Wilkinson, and Twiggs counties in the western and central parts of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route connects West Point, just east of Alabama state line, with Jeffersonville, via Barnesville.

Route description[edit]

The route runs east from its western terminus in West Point in Troup County, crosses I-85 just east of West Point, and dips slightly southeasterly into northern Harris County, where is crosses I-185 and continues to Pine Mountain on the county line with Meriwether County. Turning northeast, SR 18 runs to Greenville in central Meriwether County, and is co-signed with US 27 from their intersection south of Greenville into downtown Greenville, where SR 18 turns southeast, is co-signed with SR 109, and runs to Woodbury.

Turning east and crossing into Pike County, the route again turns northeast and runs through Molena, where its concurrence with SR 109 ends, into Concord, where it curves east and runs to Zebulon. Curving once again to the southeast, SR 18 crosses into Lamar County and runs to and around Barnesville, where it begins its overlap with US 41, before heading into Forsyth in Monroe County, ending the overlap with US 41, and where it crosses I-75 shortly after leaving Forsyth. The route continues east into Jones County and runs into Gray, where it is briefly co-signed with US 129, SR 11, and SR 22, and where it turns southeast once more in the direction of Gordon in Wilkinson County.

In Gordon, the route turns south and southeast, crosses into Twiggs County, and reaches its eastern terminus in Jeffersonville.

SR 18 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]
