Ghost freeway around Union City, TN
« on: August 23, 2014, 08:17:21 PM »

Google Maps shows a graded freeway running from just south of TN 5 to just west of TN 21, serving as a northern and western bypass.  Street View from TN 5 shows this freeway to be under construction.  I'm assuming this is I-69 construction.  What will be the termini of the first section of freeway to open, and what number will it have?

It is I69 construction.  TDOT plans show the connection to US51 at the south end should go out for bid soon.  IIRC, there are no immediate plans for the northern connection.  I took photos last summer:
