State Route 34 (SR 34) is a 43.6-mile-long (70.2 km) state highway that runs west-to-east through portions of Heard and Coweta counties in the west-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route connects the Alabama state line southwest of Franklin with the Peachtree City area.

Route description[edit]

SR 34 begins at the Alabama state line, southwest of Franklin, where the roadway continues to the southwest as Alabama State Route 22, in Heard County. In a curving fashion, it heads northeast to an intersection with the northern terminus of SR 219. It continues to the northeast and enters Franklin. Just inside the city limits, it begins a concurrency with SR 100. Just before the concurrency ends, the two routes cross over the Chattahoochee River. On the eastern side of the river, they diverge, with SR 34 continues to the northeast and intersecting US 27/SR 1. The route travels through a portion of Bush Head Shoals State Park. Then, it passes Turners Lake and Heard Wesley Cemetery, before entering Coweta County. The highway passes Josephs Lake and Dent Chapel Cemetery, before reaching the Rock Cabin Lake area. Right by the lake, it passes Emory Chapel Cemetery. Farther along, it curves to the east-northeast. Then, it passes Mountain Lake. Less than 3,000 feet (910 m) later, it meets the western terminus of SR 34 Bypass (Newnan By-Pass Road). The highway enters Newnan, where it intersects US 27 Alternate/SR 16 (Temple Avenue West). The three routes head concurrent toward the main part of town. They pass Temple Avenue Recreation Complex. In downtown, they intersect US 29/SR 14 (Jackson Street). All five highways head south. At Posey Place, SR 34 departs the concurrency and intersects the northbound lanes, where it rejoins the concurrency to the north. At Clark Street, SR 34 splits off to the northeast. A few miles farther, it meets the eastern terminus of SR 34 Bypass (this time known as Millard Farmer Industrial Boulevard. Then, it has an interchange with Interstate 85 (I-85). After that, it leaves Newnan and travels in a fairly eastern routing. In Thomas Crossroads is an intersection with SR 154 (Sharpsburg McCollum Road). SR 34 curves to the east-southeast and reaches its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR 54 just west of Peachtree City.[1]

SR 34 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]
