State Route 37 (SR 37) is a 153.6-mile-long (247.2 km) state highway that runs west-to-east through portions of Clay, Calhoun, Baker, Mitchell, Colquitt, Cook, Berrien, Lanier, and Clinch counties in the southwestern and south-central parts of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route connects the Alabama state line west of Fort Gaines to the Homerville area, via Moultrie, Adel, and Lakeland.

Route description[edit]

Western terminus through Moultrie[edit]

SR 37 begins at the Alabama state line on the western edge of Fort Gaines, in Clay County, where the roadway continues to the west as Alabama State Route 10 (Hartford Road) over the Chattahoochee River. In Fort Gaines is a very brief concurrency with SR 39. It continues to the west, to an intersection with US 27/SR 1 in Suttons Corner. Then, it cuts across a corner of Calhoun County and re-enters Clay County. At the unincorporated community of Jeff, the highway re-enters Calhoun County. Southwest of there, in Edison, is a brief concurrency with SR 216. It heads east and curves to the southeast to enter Morgan, where it has a short concurrency with SR 45. Continuing to the southeast, it crosses over Ichawaynochaway Creek, then passes McClendon Lake and enters Leary. In town is an intersection with SR 55 and SR 62 (Mercer Avenue). At this intersection, SR 62 runs concurrent until it splits off onto Albany Highway. The highway heads east-southeast, curves to the south-southeast, and travels in a nearly-due south direction, before entering Baker County. SR 37 gradually curves to the south and bends to the south-southwest and meets the southern terminus of SR 216 (Blakely Highway). Then, it curves to the east-southeast, crosses over Chickasawhatchee Creek, and passes through Elmodel. Farther to the southeast, it intersects SR 200, just before entering Newton. In town, it intersects SR 91. On the southeastern edge of town, it crosses over the Flint River and enters Mitchell County. The highway travels through rural areas of the county and enters Camilla. There, it begins to curve to the east and meets the western terminus of SR 37 Connector (West Oakland Avenue). A few blocks to the east is an intersection with SR 112 (Scott Street). Just over 3,000 feet (910 m) later, is US 19/SR 3/SR 300 (Georgia–Florida Parkway). A little farther to the east, SR 37 leaves town and runs through rural areas of the county to an intersection with SR 93. Just south of Mims Millpond, it crosses into Colquitt County. The road passes through Hartsfield and Funston, until it enters Mountrie. There, it begins a concurrency with SR 111. Just over 1,000 feet (300 m) later, they cross over the Ochlockonee River and run along the Riverside–Moultrie city line. A short distance later, also on the city line, is the end of the concurrency, with SR 111 departing on West Bypass NW. It continues to run along the city line until the intersection with 11th Street SW/Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive NW. In downtown Moultrie is an intersection with US 319 Business/SR 33. Farther to the east, it crosses over Okapilco Creek and intersects US 319/SR 35/SR 133. The four highways run concurrent to the north for about 3,000 feet (910 m). There, SR 37 splits off to the northeast onto 2nd Street NE.[1]

East of Moultrie[edit]

Just south of Reed Bingham State Park, the highway crosses over the Little River into Cook County. It passes just south of Pervis Lake and then curves to the east-southeast and passes south of Giddens Pond. On the northwestern edge of Adel, it curves to the southeast and passes Cook County Airport. It then has an interchange with Interstate 75 (I-75). After that interchange, SR 37 curves to the east-northeast. Then, it intersects SR 76 (South Elm Street). The two routes continue into downtown Adel, where they intersect US 41/SR 7 (Hutchinson Avenue). Just before leaving town, they curve to the east-southeast. North of City of Adel Lake, the two routes diverge, with SR 37 continuing to the east-southeast. Later, it curves to the southeast and crosses over the Withlacoochee River into Berrien County. After a decent jaunt through rural areas of the county, it curves to the east-northeast and enters Ray City. In town, it intersects US 129/SR 11/SR 125. At this intersection, US 129/SR 11 join SR 37 in a concurrency to the east. Just before leaving town, the three routes meet the western terminus of SR 64 (Samuel Street). Immediately after that intersection, they curve to the southeast. Approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) later, they cross into Lanier County. After the county line, the concurrency begins to curve to a more easterly routing and pass north of Banks Lake. Just before entering Lakeland, they meet the northern terminus of SR 122 Connector and cross over Mill Creek. Then, they enter the town and pass by Louis Smith Memorial Hospital. In downtown Lakeland is intersections with the western terminus of SR 11 Bypass (West Church Avenue) and the northern terminus of SR 11 Connector (Pecan Street), before meeting SR 122 (West Main Street), which joins the concurrency. Approximately 400 feet (120 m) later, they intersect US 221/SR 31/SR 135, which join the concurrency. Immediately, SR 135 departs to the north-northwest on North Carter Street. At Oak Street, SR 135 Bypass joins the concurrency. At North College Street, SR 135 Bypass leaves the concurrency to the north-northwest. This intersection also marks the eastern terminus of SR 11 Bypass. The other six routes continue to the east-northeast, crossing over Big Creek before leaving town. Then, they cross over the Alapaha River. After that, US 221/SR 31/SR 122 depart the concurrency to the north-northeast. Less than 1,000 feet (300 m) later, they meet the western terminus of SR 37 Connector. Then, US 129/SR 11 leave the concurrency, while SR 37 continues to the east. The highway curves to the east-southeast and enters Clinch County. It crosses over Suwannoochee Creek and meets the eastern terminus of SR 168 (Nashville Highway). It continues to the east-southeast until it meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with US 84/SR 38, just northeast of Cutting and just southwest of Homerville.[1]

SR 37 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]
