State Route 10 begins at Downtown Atlanta on Interstate 75 and initially forms the Freedom Parkway. The road then leads as a city road, mostly single-lane, through the eastern suburbs, of which Decatur is the most important. One then crosses Interstate 285, which forms the Atlanta ring road. Along the Stone Mountain, State Route 10 is a short freeway with 3 to 4 lanes in each direction. The road then resumes as an urban road through the suburbs of Snellville and Loganville, leaving the metropolitan area of the Atlanta region.
Shortly after, you will pass the town of Monroe, where there is a northern bypass, which is a short freeway with 2×2 lanes. State Route 10 is also a divided highway with 2×2 lanes until the university town of Athens, where State Route 10 runs over the southern ring road, which is a freeway. To the east, State Route 10 leads through sparsely populated and wooded areas, with only a few villages. The road curves south and intersects with Interstate 20 at Thomson. The road then parallels I-20 east to the border town of Augusta, then the South Carolina border.

State Route 10 has historically been an important link between Atlanta and Athens, and to a much lesser extent Augusta. However, the route has already been replaced in the 1960s by alternative freeways, the I-20 from Atlanta to Augusta and the I-85 from Atlanta to Athens.
The Atlanta portion was originally planned as I-485, which was to form an east-west route through Atlanta’s eastern suburbs. The Freedom Parkway and the interchange with the Downtown Connector is a relic of the 1970s. Later, the Stone Mountain Freeway was built east of Atlanta, which opened in 1994. The highway around Monroe is a bit older and presumably built in the 1980s.
Although State Route 10 is a direct connection between Atlanta and Athens, most traffic today uses the more northerly route via I-85 and US 29.
State Route 13 in Georgia
State Route 13 is a state route and partial freeway in the U.S. state of Georgia. The road runs from Atlanta to Gainesville. A small section of 5 kilometers in Atlanta is a freeway, the rest is an urban arterial. The entire route is 80 kilometers long.
State Route 13 begins in Midtown Atlanta and then is a short 2×2 lane freeway. This freeway runs directly parallel to Interstate 85 and interchanges between the two freeways are possible. The adjacent I-85 has 2×5 lanes and is much more important. The highway ends after 5 miles at Sidney Marcus Boulevard, almost below the stack between I-85 and State Route 400.
One then quickly enters DeKalb County, a suburban county, with State Route 13 forming the Buford Highway, a seven -lane urban arterial with a center turn lane. In Doraville one crosses the ring road Interstate 285. One then reaches the northeastern suburbs of Atlanta, located in Gwinnett County. Here, State Route 13 is predominantly a five-lane road with a center turn lane. After Duluth, State Route 13 becomes single-lane and parallels the more important Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.
After Suwanee, State Route 13 follows Interstate 985 to Gainesville. In fact, the entire 80-kilometer route from Atlanta to Gainesville runs through built-up areas.
The highway portion of State Route 13 in Atlanta is the original route of Interstate 85, which opened to traffic in 1954 as one of Atlanta’s first highways. This section was replaced in the 1980s by a new route with 2×5 lanes, leaving the old route for local traffic.
The freeway portion will handle 30,000 vehicles at Midtown Atlanta, increasing to 78,000 vehicles parallel to I-85.
State Route 28 in Georgia

State Route 28 is a state route in the U.S. state of Georgia. The road forms a north-south route through the east of the state and consists of two sections that are widely spaced, with one section through the city of Augusta that has highway features and a second section in far northeast Georgia. State Route 28 is 42 kilometers long.
State Route 28 begins on the South Carolina border on a 2×2 lane bridge over the Savannah River. The road then enters the city of Augusta from the southeast as an urban arterial. There is a connection to Interstate 520 on the outskirts of the city. The road then passes through Downtown Augusta and forms a short highway northwest of it, the John C. Calhoun Expressway. In the suburbs of Augusta, State Route 28 is again a single-storey urban arterial with a connection to Interstate 20. Via the suburb of Martinez, the road then leads back to the South Carolina border, again formed by a bridge over the Savannah River.
The second part of State Route 28 begins again as the crow flies 180 kilometers north on the border with South Carolina, this time in the Appalachian Mountains. This area is densely forested and mountainous with peaks up to 1,100 meters. The road runs through the extreme northeast of Georgia, with only one intersecting road to the North Carolina border, where NC-28 continues to Highlands and Franklin.
The northeast portion of Georgia was created in 1921 as State Route 68, which was renumbered State Route 20 in 1932. State Route 52 was introduced by the Augusta Region in 1921 and was paved between 1930 and 1932. In that year, the route was renumbered as State Route 105. In 1938 this became State Route 28, which was part of three State Route 28’s in South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina. In 1939 the northern part of the Appalachian Mountains was also asphalted.
On February 24, 1976, the John C. Calhoun Expressway in Augusta, a 4 kilometer long highway, was opened.
