Those hotels predate any inkling of the location of I-69 by quite a bit; especially the Quality Inn. ;)


For the record, that's 13 years of construction for this measly chunk of I-69. Some of that pavement is almost a decade old already.

The grading is a decade old. The paving project started in 2021.

That would be true for the bridges of the center section of the bypass  (TN 22, Brevard Road, Mt. Zion Road, and Perry Browder Road), not the Southern section, or obviously, the Northern section.  Those two interchanges and the MtZ & PB Rd. overpass were all built circa 2012.

Press release today w/ Obion County Mayor regarding the 690 signage. Still no timeframe on when it will be open.

Well, at least that confirms it will indeed be TN-690 to start instead of I-69.
