The 59.5 mile Savannah spur begins in Register, Georgia, and parallels I-16, so expect local traffic on it. Traffic increases as you near downtown. The last half-mile of the route winds through three small squares in the historic district. The route south from Statesboro is rural and occasionally traverses pine plantations. A highlight of this section is the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, located on the Okefenokee Alternate. Expect urban riding conditions while skirting Jacksonville, Florida, and the string of beach comunities to the south. Roads in northern Florida have somewhat higher traffic levels than found in Georgia. The route ends in historic St. Augustine, FL. Click on enlargement for detail.
