The Loop

SR 10 Loop, the Athens Perimeter Highway, encircles Athens along a 19 mile course. The limited access highway also carries portions of U.S. 29, U.S. 78, U.S. 129 and U.S. 441. Interchanges are numbered Exits 1 through 20, counter clockwise from U.S. 78 & SR 10. The state route uses inner and outer direction banners.

The Athens Perimeter Highway was previously signed as a north/south route and exit numbers orientated in a clockwise direction. The Georgia Department of Transportaton (GDOT) added the designation of SR 422 to the loop in 2000. Like other 400 series state routes in Georgia, the route number is hidden.
