U.S. Route 341 (US 341) is a spur of U.S. Route 41.

Route description[edit]

US 341 is a part of the National Highway System from its southern terminus in Brunswick north to SR 224 near Perry.[2]

Brunswick to Jesup[edit]

US 341 begins at an intersection with US 17 and SR 25 (Glynn Avenue) in the southeast corner of the city of Brunswick, a short distance north of the Sidney Lanier Bridge. US 341 and its state route companion, SR 27, head west along 4th Street, a four-lane undivided street. The highway turns north onto Newcastle Street and passes along the edge of the Port of Brunswick. Newcastle Street becomes two lanes at 1st Avenue; US 341 turns west onto Prince Street then north onto Bay Street, which becomes a four-lane divided highway immediately to the south of the intersection. The highway parallels Norfolk Southern Railway's Brunswick District north between downtown Brunswick to the east and an industrial area along the East River. At the north end of downtown, US 341 has an oblique intersection with US 25 (Newcastle Street), whose companion route is SR 25 Connector and which serves as a the main street of downtown Brunswick.[3][4]

US 341 and US 25 continue north along Newcastle Street as a four-lane highway with center turn lane out of the city of Brunswick. The highway has a partial interchange with Norwich Street and its name changes to Norwich Street Extended. US 341 and US 25 cross over the paralleling rail line and have a partial interchange with Ross Road and another road that parallels the railroad. In the unincorporated community of Dock Junction, the U.S. Highways intersect SR 303, which heads east as Community Road and west as Blythe Island Highway. Immediately to the south of the intersection is an acute intersection with SR 303 Connector, which serves as a cutoff between US 25 and US 341 and SR 303. The U.S. Highways continue as New Jesup Highway across Yellow Bluff Creek and expand to a six-lane divided highway ahead of their partial cloverleaf interchange with I-95. US 341 and US 25 become a four-lane highway with center turn lane again, intersect CSX's Brunswick Subdivision at grade, and intersect SR 32 and SR 99 in the hamlet of Sterling. SR 99 heads east as Grants Ferry Road; SR 32 and SR 99 head west as Harrell Highway.[3][4]

US 341 and US 25 closely parallel the Norfolk Southern rail line northwest from Glynn County into Wayne County and to the city of Jesup. The U.S. Highways enter the city as Cherry Street between their crossing of Penholoway Creek and their intersection with US 301 and SR 23; US 25 splits north to join US 301 toward Ludowici. Just north of the US 301 intersection, US 341 turns north onto Pine Street, a four-lane street with center turn lane that curves northwest and parallels Cherry Street through the city. The U.S. Highway crosses over CSX's Nahunta Subdivison between the Jesup Amtrak station and the orthogonal intersection of the CSX and Norfolk Southern lines. North of the CSX line, US 341 intersects US 84 (1st Street) and its companion SR 38. The route has an oblique intersection with SR 169 (Lanes Bridge Road) and collects the western end of Cherry Street as it leaves Jesup as Odum Highway. US 341 passes through the town of Odum as its Main Street and crosses to the north side of the Norfolk Southern rail line in an S curve at the Wayne–Appling county line.[3][4]

Jesup to Hawkinsville[edit]

US 341 continues west as Golden Isles Parkway. The highway intersects SR 121 (Still Street) in the town of Surrency and crosses Satilla Creek. US 341 meets US 1 (Main Street) and its companion SR 4 in the city of Baxley, through which US 341 follows Parker Street. US 341 continues northwest into Jeff Davis County and the city of Hazlehurst. The U.S. Highway enters along Jarman Street and intersects and runs concurrently with US 23 and its companion SR 19. Near the center of town, the U.S. Highways meet the northbound lanes of US 221 (Cromartie Street) and its companion SR 135. Northbound US 221 overlaps US 341 and US 23 as they curve onto Coffee Street and have an oblique intersection with Tallahassee Street, which heads south as the southbound lanes of US 221 and north with both directions of the U.S. Highway. US 341 and US 23 leave town as Lumber City Highway.[3][4]

US 341 and US 23 cross the Ocmulgee River just west of its confluence with the Little Ocmulgee River and enter Telfair County and Lumber City as Golden Isles Highway. Within the city, SR 19 splits northeast toward Glenwood and the U.S. Highways meet the eastern end of SR 117 (Main Street), then intersect at grade the Norfolk Southern rail line. US 341 and US 23 enter the town of McRae as Oak Street; east of downtown, the highways split into a one-way pair, Railroad Street northbound and Oak Street southbound. The streets intersect 3rd Avenue, which carries US 280, US 441, SR 30, and SR 31, before rejoining and entering the neighboring town of Helena, where US 341 and US 23 intersect a CSX rail line.[3][4]

US 341 and US 23 follow McRae Highway when they enter Dodge County. The highway has a pair of intersections with SR 165, Chauncey Dublin Highway and Chauncey Rhine Highway, as it passes through the town of Chauncey. On the southern edge of Eastman, US 23 and US 341 Business (College Street) continue straight parallel to the Norfolk Southern rail line toward the center of town while US 341 splits west to bypass the town. US 341 intersects SR 87 and SR 117 (Rhine Highway) south of town and meets the northern end of US 341 Business (Hawkinsville Highway) on the west side of town. US 341 becomes Eastman Highway and crosses Mosquito Creek as it enters Pulaski County and approaches the city of Hawkinsville.[3][4]

Hawkinsville to Barnesville[edit]

Just east of Hawkinsville, US 341 and SR 27 have a four-legged intersection with several highways. The south leg of the intersection is Lower River Road, which carries SR 230. The north leg of the intersection is Cochran Highway, which carries US 129 Alternate, SR 26, SR 112, and SR 257. The seven highways head west along Eastman Highway, whose carriageways split as they approach the Ocmulgee River. The westbound and eastbound roadways enter the city of Hawkinsville along Commerce Street and Broad Street, respectively. Immediately to the west of the river, all of the routes except SR 27 turn south from the westbound roadway onto a one-way street, which joins Broad Street as its westbound lanes. US 341 Business and SR 27 continue west from the turn along Commerce Street. The six-route concurrency continues to Jackson Street, where US 129 Alternate reaches its southern terminus. Jackson Street carries US 129, SR 11, and SR 129 to the south and US 129 Business and SR 11 Business to the north. US 341, US 129, SR 11, SR 27, SR 230, and SR 257 continue west along Broad Street; SR 27 and SR 257 split southwest onto McCormick Avenue at the west end of downtown.[3][4]

SR 230 continues west along Broad Street while US 341, US 129, and SR 11 turn north onto an unnamed street. The three highways intersect SR 26 (Commerce Street) and collect their three business routes on the northwestern edge of the city. As the highways leave the Hawkinsville area, US 129 and its companion SR 247 split northwest onto Warner Robins Highway; US 341 and SR 11 follow Perry Highway toward Houston County. At Hayneville, the highway meets the eastern end of SR 224 (Larry Walker Parkway), a four-lane divided highway that leads directly to I-75, while US 341 continues northwest toward Perry as a two-lane road. The highway crosses over a Norfolk Southern rail line at Clinchfield, then crosses Big Indian Creek and meets the southern end of SR 247 Spur. The U.S. Highway enters the city of Perry as Main Street. US 341 has an acute intersection with SR 127 (Houston Lake Road), with which the highway runs concurrently for five blocks. SR 11 diverges from US 341 onto Meeting Street to join US 41 to the north; two blocks to the west, US 341 turns north onto Ball Street and intersects US 41 and SR 7 (Commerce Street); the latter route becomes US 341's companion state highway. US 341 becomes a four-lane divided highway, Sam Nunn Boulevard, at the convergence of Ball Street and Washington Street and meets I-75 at a diamond interchange.[3][4]

Northwest of Perry, US 341 reduces to two lanes and closely parallels a Norfolk Southern rail line into Peach County. The highway enters the city of Fort Valley as Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. Just east of downtown, US 341 turns onto Oakland Heights Parkway, which intersects a second Norfolk Southern rail line before meeting and becoming concurrent with SR 96 at an acute intersection. The U.S. Highway diverges from SR 96 (Vineville Street) at its intersection with SR 49 (Camellia Boulevard), then intersects a third Norfolk Southern rail line. US 341 intersects SR 49 Connector as it leaves Fort Valley shortly before entering Crawford County. The highway enters the town of Roberta along Dugger Avenue, which meets the eastern end of SR 128 (Agency Street). US 341 also intersects US 80 (Crusselle Street) and its companion SR 22. At the same intersection, US 341 becomes concurrent with SR 42, which follows US 80 east to the adjacent community of Knoxville. US 341 and SR 42 diverge at the hamlet of Musella. The U.S. Highway passes through the southwestern corner of Monroe County, where it meets SR 74 at a roundabout just north of the town of Culloden and SR 83 near the hamlet of Strouds. US 341 continues northwest into Lamar County and reaches its northern terminus at a three-legged intersection with US 41 and SR 18 on the southeastern edge of Barnesville. SR 7 continues north from the intersection with US 41 and SR 18 toward the center of town.[3][4]
