U.S. 82

Home » Guides » Georgia » U.S. 82

U.S. 82 crosses southern Georgia from Eufaula, Alabama east to Albany, Tifton and Brunswick. Through Albany, U.S. 82 combines with U.S. 19 along the Liberty Expressway, a freeway bypass around the north and east sides of the city. The former route southeast to Downtown along Dawson Road and east across the Flint River along Oglethorpe Boulevard is U.S. 82 Business. The Liberty Expressway west from U.S. 19 to U.S. 82 was initially designated as SR 333. U.S. 82 shifted onto the freeway, with the old alignment renumbered as a business loop per AASHTO on October 13, 1979.

Through Waycross, the U.S. 82 was realigned to bypass a portion of the city on a new route west to Waresboro. This change was approved by AASHTO on May 23, 1984. The east end was extended from the intersection with U.S. 17 at Midway to overtake SR 38 east to Interstate 95 at Exit 76. This included a new alignment (State Route 707) running east from U.S. 17/82 to SR 38 (Martin Road). AASHTO signed off on the extension at their meeting on June 25, 1979.

The alignments of U.S. 82 and U.S. 84 east of Waycross traded places, with U.S. 82 overtaking U.S. 84 east from Waycross to Brunswick and U.S. 84 following what was U.S. 82 northeast to Midway. An additional adjustment approved by AASHTO on December 2, 1988 was the elimination of U.S. 84 east from I-95 into the city of Brunswick. That left the new U.S. 82 ending at I-95 instead of running concurrent with U.S. 17 across the Sidney Lanier Bridge as U.S. 84 did.
