U.S. Highway 29 (US 29) in the state of Georgia is a north–south United States Numbered Highway that runs southwest to northeast from West Point at the Alabama state line to the South Carolina state line, near Lake Hartwell. From West Point to Downtown Atlanta, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has cosigned US 29 with State Route 14 (SR 14). North of Downtown Atlanta, the route runs along SR 8 to Dacula and again from west of Statham to the South Carolina state line.

Concurrencies of US 29 with U.S. Highways in Georgia include US 27 in LaGrange as well as US 27 Alternate (US 27 Alt.) from Moreland to Newnan. Others include US 19/US 41 from Castleberry Hill to the vicinity of Georgia Tech in Atlanta, US 78 from Georgia Tech to Scottdale, and again from near Bogart to Athens, US 278 from Georgia Tech to Druid Hills, US 23 from east Atlanta to Decatur, and US 129/US 441 in the vicinity of Athens.

Route description

The following portions of US 29 in Georgia are part of the National Highway System, a system of routes determined to be the most important for the nation's economy, mobility, and defense:


Former sections of the road have included local streets named "Old Highway 29" in various locations as well as Broad Street (SR 14 Conn.) in LaGrange[4][5] and US 29 Bus. between Dacula and west of Statham. Other former segments include Old West Point Road south of LaGrange, Wynne-Russell Drive in Lilburn, Old Athens Road in Lawrenceville, Sam Groves Street in Danielsville, Old Royston Road in Bluestone, and Franklin Springs Circle in Royston.

Parts of US 29 to the southwest of Atlanta has been named Roosevelt Highway, since Franklin D. Roosevelt made his final journey northward from Warm Springs along this stretch of highway. Large crowds gathered along US 29 on this day in April 1945 to pay their final respects to the deceased president. Unfortunately, for those who waited along the highway, they missed seeing the president's body being transported back to Washington DC on a train that ran on nearby tracks.
