There's a project in Kentucky's six-year plan to rebuild the interchange yet again, with a new bridge to be built to the south of the existing one.

That seems wasteful to me. The state has had an option (or owned outright) the land where the Ford facility is going to be built for years. They should have included the rebuild of the KY 222 interchange as part of the original I-65 widening.

It doesnít look like the TN 222 interchange was rebuilt, if Google street view is any indication. The bridge looks old.

Yes I believe the bridge is original, but itís always looked decent, meaning that it may have been reconditioned at some point in time.  Probably in the 80ís because I donít remember it being done.  And the ramps at that I-40 diamond interchange are much longer than you would expect to see on a circa early-60ís Tennessee freeway.  Now Iím wondering if the ramps were added in the 80ís at the same time the bridge was theoretically reconditionedÖ

The long ramps were already present in the 1980 historic aerial.  The ramps where they meet TN 222, especially on the south side of the interchange were redone about 2014.

The 1970 Fayette County map shows a diamond interchange there - https://vintageaerial.com/scanned_maps/TN-Fayette-80-02

I drove down to Memphis, driving I-69 thru western Kentucky then crossing into Tennessee. Around Union City, progress is going well at the eastern I-69/US-51 interchange. Unfortunately I was pressed for time and could not take pictures of the interchange. From the looks of it, the flyovers are coming along nicely. The ramps are graded, but still need paving. Traffic was shifted to the nb US-51 carriageway. I would imagine the interchange will be finished by Spring 2022.

I could not let the trip go to a complete waste. So, I drove up TN-21 north to the unopened interchange with I-69 to check it out before the sunset. Below are the four pics I quickly took. I added links as the file sizes are rather large.

Thanks for this! Last I came through it was just a bunch of dirt & gravel trucks going up and down Perry Browder Road.

It looks like the unpaved section to the West is the original I-69 construction from 2012.

Now with the $1T Bipartisan Infrastructure (cough...pork) Bill signed into law, will TDOT be moving ahead with getting the bypass around Troy, and the interchange at South Fulton finished?
