The Savannah River Parkway (designated as SR 555 and SR 565) is a four-lane divided highway that roughly parallels the Savannah River in the U.S. state of Georgia, that exists in two distinct segments. The roadway is being considered for inclusion as part of Interstate 3 (I-3), which ultimately is planned to travel from Savannah to Knoxville, Tennessee.

Route description[edit]

Western branch[edit]

The western branch follows US 25/SR 121 from I-16 south-southwest of Statesboro north-northeast into town and then north-northwest to Millen.

Eastern branch[edit]

The eastern branch begins at the interchange of I-95 and SR 21/SR 30 in Port Wentworth and follows SR 21 northwest to Millen.

Combined section[edit]

In Millen, both branches merge and follow US 25/SR 121 northward to an interchange with I-520 in Augusta.
