U.S. Route 19 (US 19) is a U.S. Highway that travels from Memphis, Florida to Erie, Pennsylvania. In the U.S. state of Georgia, it runs 348 miles (560 km) from the Florida state line south of Thomasville, Georgia, through Atlanta, to the North Carolina state line at a point north of Lake Nottely.[1]

Route description[edit]

US 19 enters Georgia just south of Thomasville. It continues north, passing through Zebulon, Thomaston, Ellaville, Americus, and Albany. It joins US 41 and proceeds north to Griffin. It then proceeds through the western tip of Henry County, passing through Hampton, home of the Atlanta Motor Speedway. US 19 continues north through Clayton County where it joins SR 3 and is known as Tara Boulevard, before entering Atlanta.

The road then turns north again and splits from US 41 after passing through downtown Atlanta and traveling on 14th Street. It becomes Spring Street in Midtown before continuing north on Peachtree Street and then SR 9 (Roswell Road). After several miles, it intersects with SR 141 in Buckhead. It follows Roswell Road north through the city of Sandy Springs and leaves Atlanta from the north side of the city. At the interchange with I-285's north side, it splits from SR 9.

Most of this section is a Limited-access road with four lanes in each direction, becoming two lanes in each direction as the highway continues away from the northern suburbs of Atlanta. It arrives in Dahlonega, where it no longer is concurrent with SR 400, before about 37 miles (60 km) of extremely curvy road, which includes an overlap with U.S. Route 129 in Georgia. From the north side of the state, the last town it passes through is Blairsville.

History[edit]

In 2006, business and government officials in Columbus began a campaign to have I-185 extended to Monticello, Florida, and connect with Interstate 10. The proposed route would travel parallel with SR 520 (known as Corridor Z) to Albany, and then parallel with US 19.
