Interstate 175 Georgia

Routing

The projected route of Interstate 175 was to follow much of Georgia 300 between Albany and Cordele. Georgia 300 varies between a four lane divided highway and an undivided four-lane arterial between U.S. 82 & Georgia 520 outside Albany and Georgia 300 Connector (old GA 257) south of Cordele. The stretch east from GA 300 Connector to Exit 99 of I-75 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 Southern Terminus - Georgia 133 & 234 - southeast of Albany, 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 GA 133 north and U.S. 19 south to GA 133 south were removed from the cloverleaf interchange between 2006 and 2010. This coincided with a relocation of Georgia 133 onto the Liberty Expressway between Exits 6 and 1 and an extension of Georgia 234 east to U.S. 19. Photo taken 05/30/10.
