State Route 368 (SR 368) is a 10.6-mile-long (17.1 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Georgia. It is entirely within Elbert County and connects the Elberton area with South Carolina. It was originally built in 1940 as SR 82 and was redesignated as SR 368 in 1970.

Route description[edit]

SR 368 begins at an intersection with SR 77 (Hartwell Highway) north of Elberton and travels to the northeast, through unincorporated and generally rural areas of the county. The highway crosses the backwaters of Lake Russell, before crossing over the main channel of the lake and terminating at the South Carolina state line. There, the roadway continues as South Carolina Highway 184.

SR 368 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[4]
