State Route 46 (SR 46) is a 109.1-mile-long (175.6 km) state highway that runs west-to-east through portions of Dodge, Laurens, Wheeler, Treutlen, Emanuel, Candler, and Bulloch counties in the central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route connects the Eastman area with the southeastern part of Bulloch County. The route closely parallels Interstate 16 and serves local traffic.

Route description[edit]

SR 46 begins at an intersection with US 341/SR 27 (Hawkinsville Highway), just west of Eastman, in Dodge County. This intersection also marks the northern terminus of US 341 Business and SR 27 Business. These three highways (US 341 Business/SR 27 Business/SR 46) head concurrent to the northeast for just over 1,000 feet (300 m), then curve to the east to enter Eastman. At Ogden Street, they head southeast for a short while, then turn left on 5th Avenue. About 1,500 feet (460 m) later, they intersect US 23/SR 87/SR 117 (Oak Street). Here, US 341 Business/SR 27 Business depart to the southeast, while SR 117 runs concurrent with SR 46 for a few blocks. At Main Street, the two routes diverge. Page Street is the southern terminus of SR 46 Connector. SR 46 heads east-northeast, out of town, passing Heart of Georgia Regional Airport. The highway passes through rural areas of the county and meets the northern terminus of SR 165 (Chauncey–Dublin Highway), before crossing into Laurens County. It continues to the northeast and intersects SR 126. The two routes head concurrent to the northeast past an intersection with US 319/US 441/SR 31, and then curve to the east-southeast. Less than 1 mile (1.6 km) later, SR 126 splits off to the southeast. SR 46 travels through rural areas of the county, cuts across a corner of Wheeler County and another corner of Laurens County, before re-entering Wheeler County. The highway curves to the northeast and intersects SR 19. Then, it crosses over the Oconee River into Treutlen County. A few miles later is an intersection with SR 199. In Soperton, it intersects SR 29 (West Main Street). Two blocks later is an intersection with SR 15/SR 78 (West Louisiana Avenue). After that, it curves to the east-northeast and intersects US 221/SR 56. Just before leaving town, SR 46 curves to the southeast. It passes the Treutlen County Airport. A few miles later, it meets the southern terminus of SR 227. The route curves to the northeast and meets the western terminus of SR 298. The road passes by Wildwood Lake and intersects SR 86, just before leaving the county. SR 46/SR 86 run concurrent to the southeast and intersect SR 297 on the Treutlen–Emanuel county line. Just before entering Oak Park, the two highways curve to the east-northeast. In town, they intersect US 1/SR 4 (Harrington Street). At this intersection, SR 86 follows US 1/SR 4 south into the main part of town, while SR 46 follows US 1/SR 4 north through the northern parts of the town. They cross over the Ohoopee River and have an interchange with Interstate 16 (I-16) before SR 46 splits off and begins to parallel the interstate for the rest of its length. In fact, the two highways are never more than 3 miles (4.8 km) apart from each other. SR 46 leaves Oak Park and travels through rural areas of the county before entering Candler County. The highway passes through mostly rural areas for the rest of its length, with few exceptions. After an intersection with SR 57, it curves to the east-northeast and enters Metter. At College Street, SR 23 begins a concurrency for a few blocks. At Lewis Street is an intersection with SR 121. Here, SR 23 splits off to the south. One block later is the northern terminus of SR 129 (South Leroy Street). After the route leaves Metter, it passes through Pulaski before entering Bulloch County. SR 46 passes through Register and intersects US 25/US 301/SR 73 less than 1 mile (1.6 km) later. It passes Hickman Pond and crosses through a portion of Eagle Creek Golf Course, which is just northeast of Kennedy Pond. The route curves back to the southeast, resuming its close proximity to I-16. It passes through the unincorporated community of Denmark and has a very brief concurrency with SR 67 just southeast of there. SR 46 travels through rural areas of the county and reaches its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR 119, approximately 6.6 miles (10.6 km) northeast of Pembroke.[1]

SR 46 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]


At one point, SR 46 used to continue to US 80, just west of Blitchton in Bryan County. That portion was decommissioned and currently serves as a county road.[citation needed]
