US 378 in Georgia
According to Biotionary, US 378 is a US Highway in the US state of Georgia. US 378 forms an east-west route and secondary connection in the east of the state, from Washington to the South Carolina border near Lincolnton. US 378 is 35 kilometers long.
US 378 begins in Washington, a small town northwest of Augusta. US 378 begins here as a split from US 78. The US 378 is a single lane road and leads through an area with quite a lot of forest, but also the necessary meadows. There is only one other place on the route, Lincolnton. One then crosses the Savannah River, which is dammed here in the J. Strom Thurmond Reservoir, located on the border with the state of South Carolina. US 378 in South Carolina then continues to McCormick and Columbia.
US 378 is a relatively late addition to the US Highways network and was created in 1952. The route has always been between Washington, Georgia and Conway, South Carolina.
No upgrades have been made to US 378. The J. Strom Thurmond Dam was constructed between 1946 and 1954, turning the Savannah River into a reservoir. US 378 was assigned as the reservoir began to form. The original 1938 bridge over the reservoir was replaced in 2017 by a more modern bridge.
US 411 in Georgia
|Get started||Cave Spring|
US 411 is a US Highway in the US state of Georgia. The road forms a secondary east-west and north-south route in the northwest part of the state. The main city on the route is Rome. The road is 180 kilometers long.
At Cave Spring, the road enters the state from Alabama. US 411 in Alabama comes from the town of Gadsden and then runs straight to Rome, where the road is briefly double-numbered with US 27, the road from La Grange to Chattanooga. The road has 2×2 lanes after Rome until Cartersville, where it intersects US 41, and just after that Interstate 75, the highway from Atlanta to Chattanooga. The road then curves north and runs through the southern foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and has 2×1 lanes of traffic. You still mainly pass through villages. At Chatsworth one crosses the US 76, the road from Chattanooga in Tennesseeto Anderson in South Carolina. The road then crosses the Tennessee border at the appropriate village of Tennga. US 411 in Tennessee then continues to Knoxville.
The number US 411 was assigned several times until the current US 411 was added to the network of US Highways in 1934. From the beginning US 411 ran through Georgia, the route then ran from Gadsden, Alabama to Tennga, Georgia. Tennga is a portmanteau of Tennessee and Georgia, this village lies on the border of both states on the Georgia side. US 411 ended on the border between Georgia and Tennessee. In 1940 the route was extended further north into Tennessee.
US 411 originally ran into downtown Cartersville, a detour at the tipping point of the east-west to north-south route. In the 1950s, the 2×2 US 41 was constructed as a bypass of Cartersville, on which the US 411 also lifts so that the route no longer makes the detour through the center of Cartersville. In the 1960s, the 30-kilometer stretch between Rome and Cartersville was widened to a 2×2 divided highway, making US 411 one of the first longer stretches of 2×2 in Georgia that is not an arterial road to Atlanta, although the 2×2 portion was at the time. changed to US 41 to Atlanta.
In the mid-1980s, the passage through Chatsworth was widened to 4 lanes, coinciding with US 76. At the end of the 1980s, the section between Chatsworth and Eton was widened to 4 lanes. Since the 1990s, a southeast bypass of Rome, on which US 411 would hitch a ride, has not yet been realized.
