Interstate 16 runs from Macon east to Savannah, entirely within the state of Georgia. It has a bit of an east-southeasterly tilt. The western end is at Interstate 75, just north of downtown Macon. The leg of Interstate 75 northwest of there cooperates with Interstate 16 to make a nice route from Atlanta to Macon to Savannah. Most traffic at the west end of Interstate 16 connects with the north leg of Interstate 75. At the east end of Interstate 16, the highway continues east beyond Interstate 95, to a split, where traffic either spills into downtown Savannah or onto US Route 17 northbound. Between the junction with Interstate 95 and the eastern end, Interstate 16 passes through a 4-way interchange with its only branch, Interstate 516.
My photo of an Interstate 16 marker comes from US Route 80 in Macon, Georgia. Interstate 16 runs northwest-southeast in Macon, and US Route 80, in this photo, is heading east toward the interchange it shares with Interstate 16. The sign shown in the photo is a junction marker facing west on US Route 80. This photo was taken during the drive home from the second Gulf Coast trip in November 2016.
