State Route 328 (SR 328) is an arc-shaped 9.8-mile-long (15.8 km) state highway in the northeast part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route connects Avalon and Lavonia and provides access to Lake Hartwell and Tugaloo State Park. It is known as Gumlog Road for its entire length.

Route description[edit]

SR 328 begins at an intersection with SR 17 in Avalon, in Stephens County. It travels in a roughly eastern direction and intersects Brookhaven Circle, the former path of SR 336. The highway travels through Gumlog and enters Franklin County. It travels through Poplar Grove and begins to curve to the southeast. SR 328 then travels in a roughly southern direction. It crosses over a western section of Lake Hartwell. Right after the lake, the highway travels through Gumlog. It crosses over, but does not have an interchange with Interstate 85 (I-85, Ernest Vandiver Highway). The route then curves to the south-southwest and meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR 59 (Vickery Street) in Lavonia. Here, the roadway continues as Edgewood Drive.[1]

SR 328 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[4]

History[edit]

The roadway that would eventually become SR 328 was built in the mid-1950s on a nearly straight line from Avalon to just northeast of Livonia.[5][6] In the early 1960s, SR 328 was designated along its current alignment.[2][3]
