State Route 388 (SR 388) is a 4.5-mile-long (7.2 km) state highway that runs south-to-north in a backward L-shape, completely within Columbia County, in the east-central part of the state of Georgia. It connects Grovetown to Lewiston.

Route description[edit]

SR 388's southern terminus in Grovetown, at its intersection with SR 223 and the eastern terminus of Harlem–Grovetown Road

SR 388 begins at an intersection with SR 223 and the eastern terminus of Harlem–Grovetown Road in Grovetown. Here, SR 388 is known as Wrightsboro Road, a major urban corridor farther to the east in Augusta. SR 223 north of here is also known as Wrightsboro Road, but is known as East Robinson Avenue southeast of here. SR 388 travels to the northeast and curves to the east. This 0.8-mile-long (1.3 km) section of road is lined with numerous businesses on both sides of the road. It is the main entry point to Goodale Park. When it meets the Katherine Street/Wrightsboro Road/Horizon South Parkway intersection, SR 388 turns left onto Horizon South Parkway, while Wrightsboro&nsbp;Road continues to the east toward Augusta. North of that intersection, SR 388 passes a campus of Augusta Technical College, before it has an interchange with Interstate 20 (I-20; Carl Sanders Highway). Here, the roadway crosses over the Interstate highway on the Lieutenant General James E. Gray Memorial Bridge and becomes known as Lewiston Road. Nearly 2 miles (3.2 km) later, SR 388 meets its northern terminus, an intersection with SR 232 (Columbia Road), where the roadway continues as Hereford Farm Road, which leads to Evans. SR 388 serves to connect SR 223 and SR 232, which travel parallel to each other on opposite sides of I-20 in southern Columbia County. This highway and Hereford Farm Road also serve to connect Grovetown and Evans.[3]

SR 388 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of routes determined to be the most important for the nation's economy, mobility and defense.[4]

History[edit]

The road that would eventually become SR 388 was built in 1965 along the same alignment as it runs today.[5][6] By 1991, the road was redesignated as SR 388.[1][2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Columbia County.
