GA 53 WB over the Chestatee River.

Below and to the right, two very different photos from John Krakoff. The horribly ugly US shield is in Hawkinsville, and the banner should only say TRUCK. The really awesome luggage is, well, at the Atlanta Airport.

Courtesy J.T. Legg. Backstory: GA 85 was relocated back in the day, taking the road out of Warm Springs. A new alignment was built to compensate, GA 163, but Warm Springs wanted its 85 back, so GDOT gave it GA 85W and turned the relocated 85 into 85E. Come 1995, this was the last split (E/W or N/S) route left in Georgia, so 85E becamse 85 once more and 85W is now ALT GA 85, which is what you see here. So that's a W that was patched over.
Yes, GA has a GA 85 and an I-85. All GA roads have an internal SR number, and the posted number doesn't really matter (this is mostly relevant for US and I- routes).
