Corridor 1 Implementation / USBR #1 in Georgia
« on: November 24, 2010, 08:02:11 am »
This is a brief post to update ACA members and forum readers on anticipated progress for US Bike Route #1 in Georgia. The ACA/AASHTO alignment runs along the coast from Savannah, GA to Jacksonville, FL. The state currently has a bicycle route (#95) that follows that same corridor mostly along US17. The Coastal Regional Commission is working on a planning study of the existing bicycle route that will provide an intial assessment of the corridor and potential alignments for USBR #1.

Questions or comments can be sent to the State Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator at bikeped@dot.ga.gov.

Nick, the route is rural inland but can be rather busy the closer you get to the coast. You might want to order a state bicycle map from GDOT, email bikeped@dot.ga.gov for a copy (not available in print, only by email currently). Also, check the Georgia Coastal Greenway if you're looking for alternate trail routes along that corridor.

Cool temps in the evenings, likely 30's with the chance of lower. That will require a sleeping bag, mat, and tent. So depends on if you want to pack that gear, otherwise do a careful Google search and figure out potential stopping points along the way. You'll get into more traffic closer to Savannah.
