State Route 383 (SR 383) is a 7.4-mile-long (11.9 km) state highway in the east-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It is located just west of Augusta, within portions of Richmond and Columbia counties. It connects Fort Gordon with Martinez and Evans.
The highway is known as Jimmie Dyess Parkway from its southern terminus to an intersection with Park West Drive just south of Interstate 20 (I-20). It is named after Lieutenant Colonel Aquilla James "Jimmie" Dyess, a United States Marine Corps officer who was a posthumous recipient of the Medal of Honor for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life" at the head of his troops during World War II in the Battle of Kwajalein, on Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands on February 2, 1944. It is also known as North Belair Road for the rest of its length. Just like nearby SR 223, SR 383 serves as an important access route leading from the local area to Fort Gordon.
SR 383 begins at an intersection with US 78/US 278/SR 10 (Gordon Highway) approximately 0.5 miles (0.80 km) north of Fort Gordon's Gate 1, in Augusta, in Richmond County. The highway heads northward, then curves north-northwesterly. It intersects Wrightsboro Road along the Columbia County line. Just south of an interchange with Interstate 20 (I-20; Carl Sanders Highway), the highway intersects Park West Drive and Belair Frontage Road, where it takes on the North Belair Road local name. After the interchange, SR 383 travels along the Martinez–Evans city line to an intersection with SR 232 (Columbia Road). Immediately afterward, the highway enters Evans proper and curves to the northeast. In the main part of Evans, it intersects Hereford Farm Road and Towne Centre Drive. Approximately 1,500 feet (460 m) later, SR 383 meets its northern terminus, an intersection with SR 104 (Washington Road). Here, the North Belair Road designation continues northwest of Martinez.
