I-175 Georgia
History
North End
South End

Overview

The projected route of Interstate 175 was to follow much of Georgia State Route 300 between Albany and Cordele. SR 300 varies between a four lane divided highway and an undivided four lane arterial between U.S. 82 & SR 520, outside Albany, and SR 300 Connector (old SR 257), south of Cordele. The stretch east from SR 300 Connector to I-75 at Exit 99 is a controlled access expressway with an interchange at U.S. 41.

History

AASHTO established Interstate 175 on June 17, 1975 as a route running northeast from Georgia 333 southeast of Albany to Interstate 75 south of Cordele. Georgia 300 replaced I-175 (and Georgia 257) in function between the two cities.

Planned Northern Terminus I-75 at Georgia 300 – south of Cordele, Georgia

Perspective from U.S. 19 & Georgia 3 south
Entering what was a full cloverleaf interchange (Exits 1B/A) with Georgia 133 along U.S. 19 & Georgia 3 south. This exit represents the end of the Liberty Expressway, the limited access bypass of Albany. Photo taken 09/18/06.
Loop ramps from U.S. 19 north to SR 133 north and U.S. 19 south to SR 133 south were removed from the cloverleaf interchange between 2006 and 2010. This coincided with a relocation of SR 133 onto the Liberty Expressway between Exits 6 and 1 and an extension of SR 234 east to U.S. 19. Photo taken 05/30/10.
