Georgia Roads - US 221 and US 1/221/GA 17

US 221, US 1/221/GA 17

Starting in Louisville, SB where US 1 and GA 17 leave US 221. At any distance and speed, the first photo reads like US 1 and GA 4 go both directions at once. And even still, the second photo suggests GA 17 is in both directions, or nowhere at all. I wonder how many people drive straight over the median in frustration or confusion.

This might have been a good place to not show the hidden route. GA 88 EB at the beginning of a four-way-plus-GA-4 multiplex in Wrens, courtesy J. P. Nasiatka.

Sometimes, Georgia completely forgets the US routes entirely. That's fine, if they don't mind sending anyone paying attention into a brief panic. Those are some very pregnant-looking Georgia shapes, too. Maybe they'll give birth to US 1 and 221.

GA 80 EB and GA 80/88 WB at Wrens' central intersection, leaving just US 1 and US 221 alone with GA 4. (It's like being alone with your shadow, or your one cat who hides whenever you're home.)

SB in the same place.

A whole new selection of routes baffle your mind in Harlem, here NB.
