Interstate 75 travels 159 miles through Tennessee. Entering the Volunteer State at Chattanooga, I-75 initially heads northwest to the east end of Interstate 24 before turning northeast. Continuing from eastern reaches of Chattanooga, I-75 crosses White Oak Mountain toward the city of Cleveland. The freeway follows the trajectory of several ridges along the ensuing stretch through McMinn and Loudon Counties.
Crossing the Tennessee River near Loudon, I-75 approaches Lenoir City and the Knoxville metropolitan area. Interstate 40 combines with I-75 along a mostly eight lane freeway for 17 miles east from Hines Valley to West View in Knoxville. The two separate at I-640, with I-40 continuing east to Downtown Knoxville and I-75 joining I-640 to North Knoxville.
