State Route 34 (SR 34) is a 43.6-mile-long (70.2 km) state highway that travels west-to-east through portions of Heard and Coweta counties in the west-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The highway connects the Alabama state line southwest of Franklin with the Peachtree City area, via Franklin and Newnan.

Route description[edit]

SR 34 begins at the Alabama state line, southwest of Waresville, in Heard County, where the roadway continues to the southwest as Alabama State Route 22 (SR 22). In a curving fashion, it heads northeast to an intersection with the northern terminus of SR 219. It continues to the northeast and enters Franklin. Just inside the city limits, it begins a concurrency with SR 100. Just before the concurrency ends, the two highways cross over the Chattahoochee River on the Pleasant Theodore McCutchen Sr. Bridge. On the eastern side of the river, they diverge, with SR 34 continuing to the northeast and has an interchange with US 27/SR 1. The highway travels through a portion of Bush Head Shoals State Park. Then, it passes Turners Lake and Heard Wesley Cemetery, before entering Coweta County. The highway passes Josephs Lake and Dent Chapel Cemetery, before reaching the Rock Cabin Lake area. Right by the lake, it passes Emory Chapel Cemetery. Farther along, it curves to the east-northeast. Then, it passes Mountain Lake. Less than 3,000 feet (910 m) later, it meets the western terminus of SR 34 Byp. (Newnan By-Pass Road). The highway enters Newnan, where it intersects US 27 Alt./SR 16 (Temple Avenue). The three highways head concurrent toward the main part of town. They pass Temple Avenue Recreation Complex. In downtown, they intersect US 29/SR 14 (Jackson Street). All five highways head south. At Posey Place, SR 34 departs the concurrency and intersects the northbound lanes, where it rejoins the concurrency to the north. At Clark Street, SR 34 splits off to the northeast. A few miles farther, it meets the eastern terminus of SR 34 Byp. (this time known as Millard Farmer Industrial Boulevard. Then, it has an interchange with Interstate 85 (I-85). After that, it leaves Newnan and travels in a fairly eastern routing. In Thomas Crossroads is an intersection with SR 154 (Sharpsburg–McCollum Road). SR 34 curves to the east-southeast and reaches its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR 54 just west of Peachtree City.[1]

The only segment of SR 34 that is included as part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility, is the brief segment between US 29/SR 14 and I-85 in Newnan.[2]

State Route 34 Bypass (SR 34 Byp.) is a 6.0-mile-long (9.7 km) bypass route that exists entirely within the central part of Coweta County. Approximately half of the highway is located in the city limits of Newnan.

It begins at an intersection with the SR 34 mainline (Franklin Road) west of Newnan. It heads north and curves to the east-northeast and intersects US 27 Alt./SR 16 (Temple Avenue) northwest of the city. Then, it continues to an intersection with SR 70 (Roscoe Road), on the northern edge of the city. SR 34 Byp. curves to the southeast and intersects US 29/SR 14 (Jackson Street). It curves its way through the city, until it meets its eastern terminus, a second intersection with the SR 34 mainline (Bullsboro Drive), in the eastern part of town.[3]

The entire length of SR 34 is included as part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[4]
