State Route 135 (SR 135) is a 130-mile-long (210 km) state highway in the south-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It connects the Florida state line with Higgston, via Lakeland, Willacoochee, Douglas, and Hazlehurst. It travels concurrently with U.S. Route 221 for extensive distances, a short piece in Lakeland and a longer one from Douglas to Uvalda.

Route description[edit]

SR 135 begins at the Florida state line intersecting with County Road 141 (CR 141) south.[1] In Echols County it intersects SR 94, and SR 376.[2] SR 135 enters Lowndes County west of Valdosta. The only major junction in the county is with US 84/SR 38.[3] SR 135 then enters Lanier County south of Stoctkon. In downtown, it travels concurrently with US 221/SR 31 for a short distance. North of Lakeland, it travels concurrently with SR 64.[4] SR 135 enters southeast of Nashville. Just north of the county line, SR 64 splits off and joins SR 168. SR 135 also intersects SR 76, which terminates at SR 135.[5] SR 135 enters Atkinson County south of Willacoochee. In Willacoochee, it travels concurrently for a short distance with US 82 and SR 520.[6] SR 135 enters Coffee County south of Douglas, where it also travels parallel to a former Central of Georgia Railway right-of-way. In Douglas, it travels concurrently with SR 206 before the latter terminates. At the terminus, SR 135 travels concurrently with US 221 again. Together, they intersect SR 32, SR 158, and SR 206 Conn. before leaving Douglas.[7] SR 135 enters Jeff Davis County southwest of Hazlehurst. It intersects SR 107 just north of Denton; SR 107 terminates at SR 135. In Hazlehurst, US 221 splits off for a short way, while SR 135 picks up SR 135 Conn. SR 135 then picks US 221 back up, heading north. They then travel concurrently with US 23, US 341, SR 19, and SR 27. After intersecting SR 19 Conn, these roads split off.[8] SR 135 enters Montgomery County south of Uvalda. In Uvalda, US 221 splits off at an intersection with SR 56. North of Uvalda, SR 135 intersects SR 130. In Higgston, SR 135 terminates at US 280, SR 15, SR 29, and SR 30.[9]

Hazlehurst truck route[edit]


State Route 135 Truck
Location: Hazlehurst
Length: 2.0 mi[13] (3.2 km)

State Route 135 Truck (SR 135 Truck) is a 2.0-mile-long (3.2 km) truck route of SR 135 that exists mostly within the city limits of Hazlehurst. It is entirely concurrent with US 221 Truck. It begins at an intersection with US 221/SR 135 (Jefferson Street/Cromartie Street). It travels to the southeast on Jefferson Street, concurrent with US 221 Truck and SR 135 Conn., which both begin at this intersection, as well. The three highways cross over some railroad tracks of Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) and then leave the city limits. They intersect US 23/SR 19 (Alma Highway). Here, SR 135 meets its southern terminus, and US 221 Truck and SR 135 Truck turn left onto US 23/SR 19 onto Larry Contos Boulevard. The four highways travel to the north-northeast. Just before passing a Walmart Supercenter, they re-enter Hazlehurst. They cross over some railroad tracks of NS Railway and then intersect US 341/SR 27 (Golden Isles Parkway). Here, all six highways travel to the northwest. At Plum Street, the concurrency intersects the northbound lanes of US 221/SR 135 (since those highways travel through the city on one-way streets). At this intersection, US 221 Truck and SR 135 Truck meet their northern terminus.

The entire route is in Jeff Davis County.
