State Route 19 (SR 19) is a 152-mile-long (245 km) state highway that travels southeast-to-northwest through portions of Bacon, Jeff Davis, Appling, Telfair, Wheeler, Laurens, Twiggs, Bibb, and Monroe counties in the central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The highway travels from its southern terminus at US 1/US 23/SR 4 north of Alma to its northern terminus at US 41/SR 18 in Forsyth.

Route description[edit]

SR 19 begins at an intersection with US 1/SR 4 north of Alma. The route travels north, concurrent with US 23, which is also concurrent with US 1/SR 4 south of here. In Hazlehurst, US 341/SR 27 join the concurrency. In Lumber City, SR 19 departs to the north, crossing the Little Ocmulgee River, and begins to parallel the Oconee River north to Dublin. In Dublin, SR 19 travels concurrent with US 80. The two highways travel west to Macon. In Macon, SR 19 leaves US 80 and travels concurrent with US 23 again, and later, US 41. The highways travel north to Forsyth, where SR 18 travels concurrent with US 41, and SR 19 meets its northern terminus.

In 1998, the Georgia state legislature passed a resolution designating a portion of SR 19 in Macon as "Duane Allman Boulevard" and a bridge thereon as "Raymond Berry Oakley III Bridge" in honor and remembrance of late founding members of The Allman Brothers Band.[1]

The following segments of SR 19, that are concurrent with U.S. Highways, are the only segments that are included as part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility

  • The segment concurrent with US 23/US 341/SR 27 from Hazlehurst to Lumber City[2]
  • The segment concurrent with US 80/SR 26 from Dublin to an intersection with US 441 Bypass/SR 117 west of the city[2]
  • The segment from SR 57 in East Macon to just northwest of an intersection with Zebulon Road, which is just northwest of Macon[3]

Bolingbroke spur route[edit]

State Route 19 Spur
Location: Bolingbroke
Existed: 1966[8][9]–1977[6][7]

State Route 19 Spur (SR 19 Spur) was a spur route in the northern part of the Macon metropolitan area.

The road that would eventually become SR 19 Spur was designated between the middle of 1954 and the middle of 1955 as part of SR 148 from a point northeast of Bolingbroke to SR 87 east of the community.[10][11] By the end of 1966, Interstate 75 (I-75) was in process of being extended through the state. It replaced SR 148 from northeast of Bolingbroke to east of the community, with this segment under construction. The remainder of SR 148 was redesignated as part of SR 19 Spur, which also connected with US 23/US 41/SR 19 in Bolingbroke. The spur route paralleled I-75 ESE to SR 87 northwest of Macon.[8][9] In 1971, US 23 was shifted east onto SR 87.[12][13] In 1977, SR 19 Spur was decommissioned.[6][7]
