I-185 is constructed in the corridor of US 27, which forms Georgia’s westernmost north-south route. However, prior to the construction of I-185, most traffic used the state highways that provided a more direct connection between Columbus and Atlanta than US 27. However, due to the construction of I-85, a route in the US 27 corridor was closed. This makes more sense, since it meant a lot less kilometers of highway had to be built to connect Columbus and Atlanta.
The Columbus bypass was opened around 1970. The rest of the route was built later, pending the construction of I-85 in this area. In 1978, the northernmost few miles opened at La Grange, and in 1979 the major intermediate link between La Grange and Columbus opened to traffic.
At the busiest point in Columbus, 71,000 vehicles drive a day. Only 16,000 vehicles travel to I-85 daily.
