State Route 6 (also known as Camp Creek Parkway and honorarily as Tuskegee Airmen Parkway in Fulton County, Thornton Road in Douglas County, C.H. James Parkway in Cobb County and Jimmy Lee Smith Parkway, Jimmy Campbell Parkway, Nathan Dean Parkway and Wendy Bagwell Parkway in Paulding County) begins at the Georgia-Alabama state line southwest of Cedartown in Esom Hill and ends at I-85, exit 72, in College Park. State Route 6 is the state designation for U.S. 278 from the Alabama border to U.S. 78 in Douglas County. The eastern end of Tuskegee Airmen Parkway (S.R. 6) carries traffic to Interstate 85 North/South and the Atlanta Airport.

Recently, at the intersection of Tuskegee Airmen Parkway (S.R. 6) and I-285 in East Point, there has been a renaissance for south Fulton County: the opening of the Camp Creek MarketPlace. It was opened in late 2003, and the second portion opened in spring or summer of 2006.

On August 1, 2008, Camp Creek Parkway (The 12-mile (19 km) stretch of SR 6, between Fulton Industrial Boulevard and Interstate 85) was honorarily designated Tuskegee Airmen Parkway.

As of March 2009, the portion of the route in Fulton County is no longer signed as State Route 6. The only signage on this route are the Tuskegee Airmen Parkway signs. The portion near I-285 and the Atlanta Airport, which is in Clayton County, is still signed as State Route 6.
