State Route 10 begins at the Downtown Connector (I-75/I-85) in Atlanta and ends at the Georgia-South Carolina line in Augusta. The western end of S.R. 10 travels along Freedom Parkway, which bypasses the Carter Center to the west.

The Freedom Parkway portion of S.R. 10 uses the right-of-way of a canceled inner-city Interstate Highway project, Interstate 485, which would have run eastward and northword from downtown Atlanta. The original I-485 interchange with I-75/85 in downtown Atlanta is now used for access to Freedom Parkway.

The land that Freedom Parkway uses around the Carter Center, as well as the land the Carter Center sits on, was originally slated to be used for the interchange with I-485 (now known as State Route 400 further north), had those roadways been completed through the city of Atlanta proper. Community opposition ended plans for roadway construction in the late 70s or early 80s, with the land ultimately going to other uses.

In the Athens area, S.R. 10 is cosigned with U.S. 78 Business from Atlanta Highway in Bogart, through the historic Athens business district, by the University of Georgia on Broad Street, and out to the Athens Perimeter, S.R. 10 Loop, on Oconee and Oak Streets. At this point, U.S. 78 Business ends and mainline U.S. 78 rejoins the route on Lexington Road.
