Description:
Harry S. Truman Parkway is a freeway in Savannah, connecting the surrounding Savannah metropolitan area with Downtown Savannah. It was originally dubbed Casey Canal Parkway, as it paralleled the adjacent waterway. In the early 1970s, coinciding with the death of former president Harry S. Truman in 1972, the roadway was renamed to honor him.

Truman Parkway is not a state route, nor is it maintained by the GDOT: it is one of a handful of county maintained freeways in the Georgia. The Parkway has been opened in several phases: Phase I (President Street south to Victory Drive) and Phase II (Victory Drive south to DeRenne Avenue) opened to traffic by the mid 1990s. Phase III opened to traffic by April 2004 with Phase IV opening by Summer of 2005. Phases I-IV have been completed.Phase V will complete the parkway when it opens between Whitfield Avenue to Abercorn Street Extension (Georgia 204) near Holland Avenue. Phase V, which includes the Vernon River bridge, is in progress as of March 2011 and is scheduled for completion in 2013.

Harry S. Truman Parkway is one of a handful of county maintained freeways in Georgia. Other county maintained freeways include Ronald Reagan Parkway, Veterans Parkway (Southwest Bypass) and a portion of the east–west Connector in Cobb County.
