Tennessee Interstate #40 Highway Guide

Miles Kms Item Summary
I-40 exit 387 Center of Knoxville
This exit is quite confusing and busy as it is the center of Knoxville. Interstates 40 and 75 meet here, and Federal highway 441 crosses near here, and to add to the confusion highways 11 and 70 runs parallel to I-40 in this area also. If you are travelling through Knoxville you would probably be better off to take the I-640 loop around town. It adds a few miles, but will probably be faster, especially during the day. -- NOTE; For highway travel south via Interstate Highway # 75 - See Road Map Highway Travel Guide I#75- Kentucky/Tennessee State Line to Knoxville, Tennessee, for driving directions.

I-40 exit 393, merging with I-640
If you are heading east I-640 is merging back into I-40 here. There has been alot of construction in this area. Keep your speed down here as the police have been really cracking down in the construction area!

Highways 11E, 25W, and 70 merge with I-40 here.
