State Route 354 (SR 354) is a 6.9-mile-long (11.1 km), arc-shaped state highway located entirely within Harris County in the west-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It starts out in a nnorth-northeasterly direction and curves to a westerly direction. This highway was built in the early 1960s, on the same alignment as it runs today.

Route description[edit]

SR 354 begins at an intersection with SR 116 in Pine Mountain Valley. It ascends the actual Pine Mountain ridge. the route travels to the north-northeast and enters F. D. Roosevelt State Park. On top of the mountain ridge, SR 190 passes over the route on a historic bridge built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.[citation needed] It begins a curve to the west and exits the park. SR 354 enters Pine Mountain, where it intersects US 27/SR 1 (Main Street). The route continues to the west until it meets its northern terminus, an intersection with SR 18 west of the town in Champion Crossroad. The route serves as a connector and access road for traffic visiting F. D. Roosevelt State Park.[1]
