State Route 48

Home » Guides » Tennessee » State Route 48


Tennessee State Route 48 constitutes a nearly 104-mile, mostly rural route from SR 13 north of Waynesville to Hohenwald, Centerville, Dickson, Charlotte and Clarksville. Within Montgomery County, the state route combines with Tennessee 13 from Cunningham northward to Downtown Clarksville. The pair turn northeast along side the commercial arterial of U.S. 79 (Wilma Rudolph Road) to State Road, where SR 48 separates. Running north, SR 48 follows Trenton Road through hilly areas by Spring Creek before straightening out across former agricultural areas turned into suburbia to the Kentucky state line. Where SR 48 ends, KY 104 begins a 14.3-mile route to Elkton and Zion.
