We have been using this route quite this last year and between the barriers in the median and the trucks I hate it in eastern most TN and western most NC. We got off in Newport and took US highways 70 and 25 east. What a beautiful ride! I don’t think we lost anytime taking this route because it is a bit shorter. There were some passing lanes but we didn’t need them although we saw some trucks west bound.
The ride through Newport was a bit tedious but it was worth it. I think next time we do it we may cut back to 40 on 209 which I have read people bragging about.

That's a good route =)

Latest DOT gossip in this area says that "soon" I-40 will be closed going through downtown knoxville for some major renovation at James White Parkway. All traffic will be routed around knoxville on I-640.

This means traffic will suck even worse than normal in this area...

so please remember this and plan a non interstate route around town =)
