Federal, State, Local Highway Infrastructure

Lee County is blessed with modern highway infrastructure. In 2003, the Georgia DOT spent a disproportionate share of money per- capita in Lee County for progressive highway projects. The County completed an East/West Connector affectionately known as "Forrester Parkway" which was a 25 year design/build project in 2004. County residents and emergency service professionals now enjoy rapid access to all quadrants of the County.

U.S. Hwy 82 /520 W is a four-laned divided highway that runs unimpeded through Alabama and Mississippi all the way to Alamogordo, New Mexico. Going North, U.S. 82 connects with I-85 which leads directly to Atlanta.

U.S. Hwy 19 runs North/South and connects Lee County with Atlanta, GA. It is currently on Georgia's Governor Road Improvement Plan (GRIP) to be four-laned from Albany to Atlanta. This will serve as an ideal alternative to Interstate I-75.

GA Hwy 133 is also on the State paving list and will be four-laned from the ALbany/MSA to Valdosta within the next five years.

Interstate 75 is approximately 25-30 minutes from Leesburg with accessible, four-laned access.
