The Geneva–Fort Valley segment is part of the Fall Line Freeway, a long-distance route for commercial vehicles that travels from Columbus to Augusta. This segment may also be included as part of the proposed eastern extension of Interstate 14 (I-14), an Interstate Highway that is currently entirely in Central Texas and may eventually end in Augusta.

Route descriptionEdit

The route runs east from Geneva to Junction City, both in Talbot County, to Butler and Reynolds in Taylor County. Still heading east, the route briefly traverses the southernmost corner of Crawford County before heading to Fort Valley in Peach County. Still in Peach County, the route then crosses I-75 and heads east into Houston County and through Warner Robins, and continues into Twiggs County, where it turns northeast. Before reaching Jeffersonville, the route crosses I-16, then turns in an easterly direction once more towards its eastern terminus.[1]

FutureEdit

The Fall Line Freeway, which begins from Columbus along US 80/SR 22, is planned to follow SR 96 from Geneva to Fort Valley, where the freeway will then follow SR 49 and SR 49 Connector to Byron, where it will then follow to Macon on Interstate 75 (I-75). This is also part of the route envisioned for the yet-to-be-constructed I-14 that will stretch from Louisiana or Mississippi to either Georgia or South Carolina.
