State Route 241 (SR 241) is a southwest-northeast state highway located in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Georgia. It runs for approximately 5.6 miles (9.0 km) entirely within Decatur County.

Route description[edit]

SR 241 begins at the Florida state line in southern Decatur County, where the roadway continues as County Road 65 (Attapulgus Highway). It heads east-northeast to an intersection with SR 309 (Fowlstown Road). Then, the road curves to the northeast, crossing over Little Attapulgus Creek and a CSX Transportation railroad line. It then heads north-northeast, until it enters Attapulgus, where it meets its northern terminus, an intersection with US 27 Business/SR 1 Business. Here, the roadway continues as Main Street.[3]

No section of SR 241 is part of the National Highway System, a system of routes determined to be the most important for the nation's economy, mobility and defense.[4]

History[edit]

SR 241 was established in 1946 along the same alignment as it runs today. Approximately half the route was paved.[1][2] By 1948, the remainder of the highway was paved.[2][5]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Decatur County.
