Then, it meets SR 81 just southwest of Porterdale. It heads northwest to the extreme southeastern corner of Conyers, where it meets its northern terminus at Interstate 20/U.S. Route 278/SR 12. It serves as a major connector road for residents of southern Newton County and has seen significant growth in the past ten years.[citation needed][1]
