U.S. Highway 82
United States Highway 82 is an east-west United States highway. What started as a 1934 addition to the system across central Mississippi and southern Arkansas eventually became a route extending from the White Sands of New Mexico to Georgia's Atlantic coast.
As of 2004, the highway's eastern terminus is in Brunswick, Georgia at an intersection with Interstate 95. It is co-signed for its last half mile with U.S. Highway 17. Its western terminus is in Alamogordo, New Mexico at an intersection with U.S. Highway 54 and U.S. Highway 70 (though some signs continue the route to Interstate 25 in Las Cruces).
The highway passes through the following states:
