The Lee County road is exactly two lanes wide. The roads on the Dougherty County side of Albany are wider, averaging something above two lanes each. The Georgia state routes that run through Albany are very large, averaging nearly four lanes per mile of road. Dougherty County’s roads average 2.6 lanes wide within the city limits of Albany.

Each day Albany drivers put 753.12 miles on the small stretch of Lee County roadway. That number is eclipsed by the number of miles that drivers travel daily on the roads that cross the Dougherty County side of Albany; in Dougherty County, Albany drivers put 1,899,301.38 miles on the roads every day.
