What was most likely an original sign bridge, and its replacement, posted for Interstate 381 (Commonwealth Avenue northbound) at the intersection with SR 381 north. Interstate 381 begins a short distance to the left as a 1.67 mile freeway spur between Commonwealth Avenue (unsigned SR 381) and Interstate 81. To the right U.S. 11E southbound begins along Commonwealth Avenue, joining U.S. 19 & 421 southbound to Goode Street and Bristol, Tennessee. A truck route for U.S. 11 & 19 also joins Commonwealth Avenue southbound as a bypass route for Euclid Avenue between here and Moore Street. 08/24/03, 05/31/07

The north end of U.S. 11W at Commonwealth Avenue. U.S. 421 follows Commonwealth Avenue south with U.S. 11-19 Truck to Goode Street east. Eventually the route meets Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, where the truck route splits to the north and U.S. 421 heads south into Bristol, Tennessee.
SR 381 once traveled south all the way to the Tennessee state line along Commonwealth Avenue. All shields for the state route were taken down by 2007, including the entire assembly pictured in 2003. 08/24/03, 05/31/07
