U.S. Route 41 (US 41) is a part of the United States Numbered Highway System that runs from Miami, Florida, to the Upper Peninsula of the US state of Michigan. In the U.S. state of Georgia it travels 387 miles (623 km) from the Florida state line southeast of Lake Park to the Tennessee state line south of East Ridge, Tennessee. Within the state, US 41 is paralleled by Interstate 75 (I-75) all the way from Florida to Tennessee, and I-75 has largely supplanted US 41 as a major highway. Due to this, the majority of the highway is not part of the National Highway System.

Like all other United States highways and Interstate Highways in Georgia, US 41 always carries a state route number:

Route description[edit]

Southern Georgia[edit]

US 41 looking north into Georgia from across the border with Florida

US 41 enters Georgia paired with a concurrency with SR 7 southeast of Valdosta. South of the border between the states, US 41 shares a concurrency with unsigned Florida State Road 25; however that route ends upon entering Georgia. Upon entering Georgia, US 41 / SR 7 briefly pass through the southeastern corner of Echols County. The highway enters Lowndes County while heading towards Valdosta, the county seat of Lowndes. The first municipality the highway meets in southern Georgia is Lake Park. In the city, US 41 shares a brief concurrency with SR 376. To the north-northeast of Lake Park is the next town US 41 / SR 7 passes through, Dasher. Approaching Valdosta from the southeast, the highway, turns onto a bypass of the city, while business routes travel directly through the center of Valdosta. Along the bypass, US 41 / SR 7 crosses SR 94, US 84, US  221, SR 38, SR 31, and SR 125 before meeting back up with their business routes on the northwestern side of the city. North of Valdosta US 41 and SR 7 are shifted from their originally routing onto I-75 at exit 22 where the routes runs concurrently with the Interstate Highway for just under seven miles until exit 29 to the city of Hahira. At the exit US 41 / SR 7 continues north along their original path. This was done so trucks couldn't use the former routing of US 41 to bypass the Georgia weigh station on I-75. The stretch of roadway that carried US 41 until 1982 is now marked as a "county maintained" road and has a weight limit of 56,000 pounds.[3][4] After leaving the interstate, the routes run concurrently with SR 122 eastward to the center of Hahira. Upon reaching the old routing of US 41 (Church Street), US 41 / SR 7 and depart from SR 122, once again heading north.

After passing through Hahira, US 41 / SR 7 continue heading north through Cook County where the highway passes through the communities Cecil, Adel, Sparks, and Lenox. The only major intersection along US 41 in Cook County is with SR 37 / SR 76 (Fourth Street) in Adel. North along the path of the highway from Cook County is Tift County. Just south of the seat of Tift County, Tifton, US 41 / SR 7 meet the Tifton I-75 Business Route (Southwell Boulevard). The business route leaves Southwell Boulevard upon intersecting with US 41, beginning a northbound concurrency with the route through Tifton. I-75 Bus. / US 41 / SR 7 then pick up SR 125 heading north as the routes make their way into the city. In Tifton, the highway crosses the concurrency of US 82 / US 319 / SR 35 / SR 520 (East 5th Street). Two blocks north of US 82 / US 319, I-75 Bus. / US 41 / SR 7 / SR 125 veer sharply to the northeast at East First Street, then crosses a pair of railroad tracks. At 12th Street, all three routes make a sharp turn to the west while SR 125 branches off in the opposite direction, headed towards Irwinville. I-75 Bus. / US 41 / SR 7 runs west along 12th Street until it encounters Forrest Avenue and the route takes a sharp curve to the north that ends at Moore Street. Just north of Tifton and once again heading north, the routes meet exit 64 of I-75, this is the northern terminus of I-75 Bus., but US 41 / SR 7 proceed north, passing just to the east of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

After leaving Tifton, US 41 / SR 7 serves primarily as a secondary parallel route to I-75 through Turner, Crisp, and Dooly counties.

Macon and Warner Robins metro area[edit]

As US 41 / SR 7 approaches Macon from the south it enters Houston County, part of the Warner Robins metro area. South of the county seat of Houston County, Perry, US 41 continues its role as parallel to I-75. Upon entering the city limits of Perry the highway joins SR 127 and SR 224 (Golden Isles Parkway) just before an interchange with I-75 (exit 135) near the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter. After this interchange, the highway has comes to an intersection that provides access to the fairgrounds. At this intersection a spur of SR 7 travels to the fairgrounds, US 41 / SR 7 travel northeast into the center of Perry carrying SR 127 as well, while SR 224 continues east along the Golden Isles Parkway. In the center of Perry, the highway has an intersection with US 341 (Ball Street). At the intersection, SR 7 leaves US 41 travelling north along US 341 while SR 11 Bus joins US 41 heading north. Just a few blocks north of the intersection with US 341 the routes take a turn onto Macon Street now heading north. A block after that, SR 127 leaves the concurrency, heading northeast towards Kathleen. The last junction within the city limits of Perry is with a bypass of US 341 Byp. (Perry Parkway). At this intersection, SR 11 Bus terminates, SR 11 joins US 41 travelling north, and SR 11 Conn. begins, travelling with US 341 Byp. west of US 41 towards I-75 and Fort Valley.

Proceeding north US 41 / SR 11 travels along the county line between Houston and Peach counties just west of Warner Robins. The highway passes then passes in and out of the irregular city limits of Warner Robins, to the west of the center of the city and Robins Air Force Base, Georgia's largest industrial complex.[5] North of Warner Robins the highway turns northeast onto SR 49 where it joins the US 41 / SR 11 concurrency. Passing Middle Georgia Regional Airport, the highway turns north before an interchange where routes join with US 129 and SR 247 (Hawkinsville Road) and continue north into Macon.

Three miles north of that interchange the highways part ways, with US 129 / US 41 Bus. north / SR 11 / SR 49 (Broadway) continuing northeast and US 41 / SR 247 (Pio Nono Avenue) turning to the northwest. A mile north of there, the highway has another interchange with I-75 which carries the Fall Line Freeway through this part of Macon. After this interchange with I-75 US 41 does not have a direct connection to I-75 until the highways are well into the southern suburbs of Atlanta. Another two miles further into Macon, US 41 / SR 247 intersects US 80 and SR 22 (Eisenhower Parkway). Next is an intersection with SR 74, which provides access to Mercer University to the west of US 41. As US 41 now travels north away from the center of the city, Pio Nono Avenue ends at an intersection with US 41 Bus. south / SR 19 (Vineville Avenue). Here US 41 Bus. ends, US 41 turns onto Vineville Avenue where it joins SR 19 heading northwest, while SR 247 leaves the concurrency continuing north.

Travelling out of Macon and Bibb County and into Monroe County, US 41 / SR 19 meets I-475 just south of its northern end at I-75. From here, US 41 / SR 19 closely parallel I-75 to Forsyth. In Forsyth, SR 19 ends at a junction with SR 18 (Harold G Clarke Parkway). Harold G Clarke Parkway ends at the junction and SR 18 joins US 41 as the highway proceeds to the center of Forsyth. In Forsyth, the highway meets SR 42 / SR 83. SR 42 crosses US 41 while SR 83 has a brief concurrency with the highway within Forsyth. US 41 / SR 18 / SR 83 travel in a westerly path through the city before SR 83 eventually departs the concurrency travelling south. US 41 / SR 18 continue out of Forsyth travelling roughly to the west-northwest out of Monroe County into Lamar County and the southern limits of the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Southern suburbs of Atlanta[edit]

US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 in Hampton at the western terminus of SR 20

In the seat of Lamar County, Barnesville, US 41 briefly turns to the southwest to meet US 341 at its northern terminus. Here SR 7 joins US 41 again. Proceeding northwest around Barnesville the concurrency is joined by SR 36. Now turning to the north on the west side of Barnesville, SR 18 leaves the concurrency heading west towards Zebulon. US 41 / SR 7 / SR 36 continues north as a limited-access highway. To the north of the Barnesville city limits, SR 36 leaves the concurrency travelling northeast towards Jackson. US 41 / SR 7 curves to the northwest, leaving Lamar County and briefly passing through the northeast corner of Pike County before entering Spalding County.

Upon entering Spalding County, US 41 joins US 19 and SR 3. At this junction, SR 7 meets its northern end, SR 155 meets its southern end alongside business routes of US 19 and US 41. The concurrency of US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 then proceeds north to the west side of Griffin where it bypasses the center of the city as limited-access highway. In Griffin US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 has interchanges with SR 362, SR 16, and SR 92. At the interchange with SR 92, the limited-access section of the highway ends. SR 92 begins a brief concurrency with US 19 / US 41 / SR 3, but it ends just half a mile to the north of its beginning. SR 92 leaves the concurrency, heading west. US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 then proceeds through the western tip of Henry County, traveling through Hampton where it is named Bear Creek Boulevard. In Henry County, Bear Creek Boulevard intersects first with SR 20, then passes by the Atlanta Motor Speedway and shortly after has an intersection with SR 81.

US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 continues north to Clayton County where it is known as Tara Boulevard. In Clayton County, the highway enters the densely commercial and residential southern suburbs of Atlanta. Its first major intersection upon entering the county is with McDonough Road (former SR 3) in Lovejoy. Proceeding north, Tara Boulevard intersects SR 54 in the county seat, Jonesboro, here the Tara Boulevard shares a brief concurrency with SR 54. This concurrency ends when the highway meets SR 138, SR 54 leaves the concurrency to join SR 138 headed east towards the center of Jonesboro. North of Jonesboro, Tara Boulevard merges directly into I-75 while US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 veers to the north-northeast forming the remainder of a full interchange with the interstate highway. From this point northward US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 is known as Old Dixie Highway. Old Dixie Highway continues north through Clayton County, passing through Forest Park. North of Forest Park, the concurrency, now called Old Dixie Road has an interchange with the southern side of Atlanta's interstate loop, Interstate 285.


Entering the city limits of Atlanta, the highway now takes the name Central Avenue. Just inside the city limits, US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 has another interchange with I-75. Central Avenue briefly leaves Atlanta's city limits and enters the city of Hapeville. In Hapeville, the highway serves the northeastern part of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, passing near the headquarters of Delta Air Lines. Before leaving Hapeville, US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 turns north off of Central Avenue onto Dogwood Drive. Upon reentering the city limits of Atlanta the concurrency takes the name Metropolitan Parkway as it continues directly north. Metropolitan Parkway has a partial interchange with I-85 with access only to northbound traffic and from southbound traffic. Metropolitan Parkway then passes beneath the Arthur B. Langford Jr. Parkway without direct access to it or the nearby Downtown Connector. Two blocks south of I-20 the highway's name changes once more as it travels into Downtown Atlanta where it is known as Northside Drive. The route travels beneath I-20 without any direct access to the interstate.

Within Downtown Atlanta, US 19 / US 41 / SR 3 runs along Northside Drive where it is joined by US 29 / Georgia Connecting Route 3 (Chapel Street Southwest). From there, US 19/ US 29/ US 41 / SR 3 runs north and then curves northeast after passing beneath SR 14 / SR 154 (Peters Street), then straight north again between Nelson Street Southwest and Markham Street Southwest. Here the routes run along the west side of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium next door to the Georgia World Congress Center. As the highway enters Midtown Atlanta, US 29 leaves the concurrency with US 19 / US 41 just to the west of the Georgia Tech campus, and turns northwest onto US 78 / US 278 / SR 8, which leaves US 19/41 heading west. The highway briefly curves northeast as it passes over some Norfolk Southern Railway lines, then turns north again at a partial interchange with Tech Parkway Northwest. Leaving the vicinity of Georgia Tech, it splits from US 19/SR 9 at an intersection with 14th Street Northeast. US 41 / SR 3 continues north along Northside Drive along the western edge of Atlantic Station towards Buckhead.

Upon entering Buckhead, US 41 / SR 3 has an interchange with I-75, just north of the Brookwood Split. Continuing directly north, Northside Drive crosses over Peachtree Creek. Just over a mile north of the river crossing, US 41 / SR 3 leaves Northside Drive, heading northwest towards Marietta. This section of the highway between Northside Drive and Cobb County is called Northside Parkway. Northside Parkway travels directly towards I-75 where it has another interchange with the interstate. Directly paralleling I-75, Northside Parkway meets West Paces Ferry Road NW. The aforementioned interchange with I-75 serves as an entrance point to that road as well as Northside Parkway. Continuing north along the interstate, US 41 / SR 3 has another interchange with it, this one also provides access to Mt. Paran Road NW. After the interchange, Northside Drive veers to the northwest slightly further away from I-75. It then crosses over the Chattahoochee River into Cobb County, leaving the city of Atlanta.

Northern Atlanta suburbs to Tennessee[edit]

U.S. Route 41 in Kennesaw as seen from Kennesaw Mountain

Upon entering the Cobb County the route is known as Cobb Parkway. Major points as the route enters in Cobb County are Cumberland Mall, an interchange with I-285, SunTrust Park, and Dobbins Air Reserve Base. US 41 continues to parallel I-75 as the highways head northwest towards Chattanooga. Heading northwest through Marietta and Kennesaw, the highway leaves the Atlanta area and enters Bartow County, through Emerson, Cartersville and Adairsville, and on into Gordon County. US 41 /SR 3 heads through Calhoun, and crosses I-75 just south of Resaca, and continues to head north into Whitfield County. Heading through Dalton, the route crosses I-75 yet again, before heading northwest into Catoosa County, where it crosses I-75 for the final time before reaching the Tennessee state line, south of Chattanooga. Here, US 41, joined by US 76, enters Tennessee, concurrent with unsigned state highway SR 8.

  • From SR 3 Conn., south-southwest of Dalton, to the I-75 interchange in the northwestern part of the city.[11]


A stone Dixie Highway marker along US 41 in Houston County

US 41 within Georgia was originally built as the western routing of the Dixie Highway. The western route of the Dixie Highway as designated in 1916, followed present-day US 41 south from the Tennessee border through Atlanta and Macon south to Echeconnee, Georgia. The section that would become US 41 from Echeconnee south through Perry and Valdosta to the border with Florida was paved beginning in 1919 and was later designated as a part of the Dixie Highway in 1924. In 1926, the western route of the Dixie Highway following the newer Perry and Valdosta route was officially designated as US 41. By October 1929, the majority of US 41 was paved in Georgia. The only sections that were not paved at that point were between Fort Oglethorpe and Ringgold, and another on the south side of Calhoun.[12]

US 41 served as the main north–south route through Georgia from its establishment all the way through the 1950s. After the conclusion of World War II, bypasses were built around the center of many towns and cities along the route, including Acworth, Adairsville, Cartersville, Emerson, Kennesaw, and Marietta. This caused businesses to vacate the central districts of those municipalities in favor of frontage along the newer routing of the highway. Upon the completion of I-75 in Georgia in 1977, US 41 was supplanted as the state's primary north–south highway.[13]

During the early morning hours of March 2, 2007, the Bluffton University bus crash occurred at the US 41 (Northside Drive) overpass on I-75 when a bus carrying the Bluffton University baseball team crashed, killing seven passengers. The bus traveled up an HOV exit ramp and overturned after failing to slow down to negotiate the turn. Flipping over 270°, the bus dropped onto I-75 below, landing on its left side and hitting a pickup truck.[14] The accident caused the National Transportation Safety Board to recommend such HOV exits to be more adequately marked.[15]
