State Route 334 (SR 334) is a 12.4-mile-long (20.0 km) south-to-north state highway located entirely within Jackson County in the northeastern part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It travels from north of Athens to Commerce. It is effectively an alternate route of U.S. Route 441 (US 441).

Route description[edit]

SR 334 begins at an intersection with US 441/SR 15 north of Athens. Past this intersection is a segment of the former route of US 441. The highway travels east-northeast and curves to the north-northeast through generally rural parts of the county. Just south of Seagraves Mill Road, it begins to curve to the northwest. In the southern part of Commerce, it has another intersection with US 441/SR 15. This intersection also marks the southern terminus of US 441 Bus., which travels concurrent with SR 334. Approximately 0.6 miles (0.97 km) later, they intersect SR 98. Here, SR 334 ends, and US 441/SR 98 have a concurrency.[1]

SR 334 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]

History[edit]

In the early 1960s, SR 334 was built, and paved, from its southern terminus, southeast of Center, to the southern part of Commerce (the current intersection with US 441/SR 15 and US 441 Bus.)[3][4] In 1991, US 441/SR 15 were rerouted through the Commerce area. Part of the former route was redesignated as US 441 Bus., with SR 334 concurrent with it.[5][6]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Jackson County.
