What is the best route between Memphis and Atlanta

We have a 37ft Class A with a toad. I am concern aped about road conditions and low bridges. What is the least troublesome route between Memphis and Atlanta? The shortest is the 78/22 through Birmingham. The longer, but all interstate (and most likely more suitable for my rig) is I-40 to just short of Nashville, then taking the 24 to the 75. Is State 78 to I-22 to Birmingham then I-20 to Atlanta. This is happening very soon.

78/22 is mostly interstate now. Just before you hit Birmingham you will find some construction on 78/22 but it won't be any problem.

I think as long as it is not this week, you will be fine.

Multiple lane closures and rolling roadblocks at I-22 interchange construction zone this week | AL.com

Oh, and keep plenty of distance on I 20 between Leeds and pell city, alabama

This is a lot easier now that 22 ends at Coalburg road (it does not connect to 65 directly yet) so stay on 22 until the very end when you have to get off (do not get off at 78).

Go right at the top of the off ramp (south) on Coalburg for about a mile or so, and then left (east) at the first light which is Daniel Payne Road, which leads you to 65 which is less than a 1/2 mile.

There is a Flying J where Daniel Payne mets 65 if you need a stop / fuel.

The 65 south / 20 east interchange is tricky, and if I remember correctly you have to be in the left lanes on 65 south to make the transition to 20 east. And 20 in downtown Birmingham is tight and very busy, and you need to pay close attention to speed and lanes.

20 from Birmingham to Atlanta is very heavy with big rigs during the week, so it's not a fun drive either, so if you can do it on a weekend it is a much less stressful drive.

Regards

...

When you see the signs for 20 East, you want to get in the 2nd lane from the left. The two left lanes exit to 20 and the far left merges into the right lane after exiting.
