    So I've never been down in TN... I've got a load going to Lebanon, TN and will be coming down I24 and need to get to I40... Is it best just to stay on 24 to the junction with 40, or is there a good way around Nashville???... I was looking at what appears to be a beltway around Nashville... The 155 I think?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I'd take the 155
    Either way is ok if it's not rush hour.
    I usually take 155 though.

    I always take 155, ever since an oversize hit a bridge downtown. But I come south on I-65 most of the time. In my opinion if there's a loop, take it.

    I run 155 anytime I'm passing through Nashville, heading to Lebanon from 24 that would be the route I'd take for sure.

    I always go that way. Watch your speed. Several unmarked work the area. Just follow the airport signs. 239 in Lebanon has a truck stop, and is where most of the industrial parks are.

    He's going 40 east. Memphis is west. Lebanon is east.

    155.on the east side of Crashville, at least you will go by the Grand Ole Opry. Watch those potholes, they have the worst..lived there in the 70's
