Route descriptionEdit

Barrow CountyEdit

SR 82 begins at an intersection with SR 11/SR 53/SR 211 in Winder. The route heads east from Winder to a second intersection with SR 211, northeast of Statham. Just east of that intersection, SR 82 intersects SR 330. A little ways to the northeast, the route enters Jackson County.

In the city of Arcade, SR 82 intersects US 129/SR 11 Conn. Just to the northeast, the highway intersects US 129 Bus./SR 15 Alt. The three highways begin a concurrency northwest to Jefferson. In the city, they intersect SR 11 Bus. SR 11 Bus. joins the concurrency for just two blocks. At this intersection, US 129 Bus./SR 11 Bus. depart to the northwest, while SR 15 Alt./SR 82 travel to the northeast. Just before leaving the city, the two routes split, with SR 82 heading to the north. Northwest of Jackson County Airport, the route intersects SR 82 Conn. Farther to the northwest, Interstate 85 (I-85) crosses the path.

Northwest of the interchange with I-85, the route enters Hall County, where it meets its northern terminus at SR 323 east of Gainesville, near Tadmore Elementary School.
