State Route 96 (SR 96) is a 94.9-mile-long (152.7 km) state highway that travels west-to-east through portions of Talbot, Taylor, Crawford, Peach, Houston, Twiggs, and Wilkinson counties in the west-central part of the U.S. state of Georgia. The route travels from its western terminus at US 80/SR 22/SR 41 in Geneva to its eastern terminus at US 441/SR 29 south of Irwinton.

The Geneva–Fort Valley segment is planned to be incorporated into the Fall Line Freeway, a long-distance route for commercial vehicles that is to travel from Columbus to Augusta. This segment may also be included as part of the proposed routing of Interstate 14 (I-14), an Interstate Highway that is planned to travel from Natchez, Mississippi to Augusta.

Route description[edit]

The route runs east from Geneva to Junction City, both in Talbot County, to Butler and Reynolds in Taylor County. Still heading east, the route briefly traverses the southernmost corner of Crawford County before heading to Fort Valley in Peach County. Still in Peach County, the route then crosses I-75 and heads east into Houston County and through Warner Robins, and continues into Twiggs County, where it turns northeast. Before reaching Jeffersonville, the route crosses I-16, then turns in an easterly direction once more towards its eastern terminus.[1]

Future[edit]

The Fall Line Freeway, which begins from Columbus along US 80/SR 22, is planned to follow SR 96 from Geneva to Fort Valley, where the freeway will then follow SR 49 and SR 49 Connector to Byron, where it will then follow to Macon on Interstate 75 (I-75). This is also part of the route envisioned for the yet-to-be-constructed I-14 that will stretch from Louisiana or Mississippi to either Georgia or South Carolina.
