Nashville traffic

Later this month I will be staying north of Nashville and traveling north to south through Nashville, ( I-65 ) on a Monday Morning. Last year I-65 was a real hassle of traffic. Is there a better way than I-65; and what is the suggested least hassle way ?

Going north to south there is no good way to avoid Nashville. The only alternative that comes to my mind is to jump on SR 155, Riley Parkway southbound. It is a real good multi-lane highway but you will be forced to exit that road where it intersects with I-40 near Nashville International Airport. From there, take I-40 west to I-440 then to I-65 south.

During rush hour all of those roads will be jammed with cars and the only real way is to go on Sunday or after rush hour. If you are stopping for the night well north of Nashville up in Kentucky and can exit I-65 and get to US 231, then you could take it south to Lebanon, TN and use SR 840 and totally avoid all of Nashville. We've driven US 231 several times when we go up to the Elkhart, Indiana area and it is a nice drive. And SR 840 is a wide open highway.

I live off 109 in Lebanon. I would take 109, I believe it is exit 2 in Ky. Take 31 south about a mile, then turn left onto 109 South. Go thru Portland and it will be four lane to Gallatin, then two lane to hwy70 at Lebanon. Continue south until you reach hwy 840. Will probably be 18 mile longer, but avoids Nashville

An after thought is if you travel 231, when you get near Lebanon, take Hartman Drive to I40 West to 840 West. They are working at the square in Lebanon and it's a real mess
