Georgia Road Network
This map provides detailed information on the various state and national highways that connect Georgia with the rest of the United States of America.
The Georgia Department of Transportation comprises Federal-aided primary roads and national highways. It also maintains the state’s older roads and construct the new ones. This upkeep not only connects the rural, semi-urban, and urban areas of the state of Georgia, it also helps Georgia’s interstate commerce.
Northern Georgia is connected to the southern part by interstates 95, 59, 85, and 75. Interstates 16 and 20 join the state’s eastern and western sides. These national highways pass through important Georgia cities such as Westminster, Athens, Atlanta, Macon, Perry, Dublin, Dalton, Augusta, Savannah, Geneva, and Douglas.
