Best route from Nashville to Denver

We are heading west this Friday from Nashville. I am wondering what you all think is a good route to take to go to Denver. I could go north toward St. Louis and then west on 70. I could go west on 40 to Oklahoma City and then north to 70. What do you all think? I believe the route to St Louis and then west is the shortest. It is going to be hot either way. Which one has the fewest number of hills?

Also concerned about which one would be best considering tornados.

Steve

The only notable difference between the two routes listed is that you will encounter toll roads between OK City and I-70 in Kansas. So I would take the St Louis route.

Traveled it many times. Good road all the way except expect heavy traffic in St Louis. Try and time your trip through St Louis other than rush hour. Safe Travels!

Go through St Louis and I agree to avoid St Louis during rush hour. Interstate 64 through St Louis is brand new.

I live the St Louis area and travel to KS often. I suggest come in on I 64 then take I 255 north to connect to I 270 which then connects to I 70. There is lots of lane closures on I 64 thru St Louis this summer. This will eliminate downtown on I 70 or traveling I 64/40.

Look up the hwy 24 bridge closure schedule in Nashville before departing. You will want to time your departure to avoid that mess.

Seems that closure will be every and all weekend through the summer.

Anybody know of a good drive around that keeps you off city streets?

Not sure where in Nashville you are leaving from. We departed from near the Opry Monday morning heading south on 65 around 1000 and had no problem, but we were not trying to get on 24.

Came in Friday from Indianapolis on 65 and again had no trouble getting to Opry area, but we're not near 24.

On Sunday we had a devil of a time around downtown due to the closures.

We came from Colorado, but by way of Iowa to have slide repaired at HWH. You would not want to take our route just to dodge the closures in Nashville.

Have a great trip and enjoy Colorado. We sure did.

I'll be passing through N'ville from the south. Just looking for the most direct way to avoid the bs.
