This is the first state map in 26 years to show the completed route that bypasses Nashville and provides access to Interstate 40 east and west of Nashville, Interstate 24, and Interstate 65. 

“The state map is a valuable tool for motorists, and can assist them in planning their route through Tennessee,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “The map is free and is also available at welcome centers and rest areas across the state.” 

The 2013 state map can also be downloaded from the TDOT web site at www.tn.gov/tdot/maps.htm.
