U.S. Route 19 (US 19) is a U.S. Highway that travels from Memphis, Florida to Erie, Pennsylvania. In the U.S. state of Georgia, it runs 348 miles (560 km) from the Florida state line south of Thomasville, Georgia, through Atlanta, to the North Carolina state line at a point north of Lake Nottely.[1]

Route description[edit]

US 19 enters Georgia just south of Thomasville. It continues north, passing through Zebulon, Thomaston, Ellaville, Americus, and Albany. It joins US 41 and proceeds north to Griffin. It then proceeds through the western tip of Henry County, passing through Hampton, home of the Atlanta Motor Speedway. US 19 continues north through Clayton County where it joins Georgia State Route 3 and is known as Tara Boulevard, before entering Atlanta.

The road then turns north again and splits from U.S. Route 41 after passing through downtown Atlanta and traveling on 14th Street. It becomes Spring Street in Midtown before continuing north on Peachtree Street and then State Route 9 (Roswell Road). After several miles, it intersects with Georgia 141 in Buckhead. It follows Roswell Road north through the city of Sandy Springs and leaves Atlanta from the north side of the city. At the junction with I-285's north side, it splits from SR 9.

From the north side of the state, the last town it passes through is Blairsville. Most of this section is a limited access highway with 4 lanes in each direction, becoming 2-lanes in each direction as the highway continues away from the northern suburbs of Atlanta. It arrives in Dahlonega, where it no longer is concurrent with Georgia 400, before about 37 miles (60 km) of extremely curvy road.

History[edit]

In 2006 business and government officials in Columbus began a campaign to have I-185 extended to Monticello, Florida, and connect with Interstate 10. [1] The proposed route would run parallel S.R. 520 (known as Corridor Z) to Albany, and then parallel to U.S. Route 19. [2]
