Nashville(I-24) to I-75 Southbound

Any suggestions on how to bypass Chattanooga? Coming from Michigan via I-65 to Nashville and picking up I-24. Have always gone around Chattanooga to I-75 but would like to avoid that route if possible? Any suggestions?...Bob

Our son lives in Chattanooga and I hate I-24 through there, but I don’t now any easy way around it if you’re taking I-75. Like I said I dislike Chattanooga almost as much as Atlanta.
Of course you can stay on I-65 through Birmingham and Montgomery then take 231 down to I-10, but out of the way unless you’re going west.

Florida in morse code for rk911. Just having a little fun....Atlanta traffic is congested and very slow for the most part. Chattanooga is just plain scary with all the trucks flying up and down the mountain and over the bridge....if the weather is bad

I too really dislike I24 around Chattanooga. One would think, after all these years, that the drivers there would know about the hills and sharpe curves - but nooooooo - they insist on speeding and, eventually, wrecking. And one would think TN might widen that road a bit - but, again, nooooo.

Anyhow. Try this....
I-65 To Birmingham
US280 from Birmingham all the way to Tifton, GA.
Then back to I-75

We drive to/from Columbus from the Fl east coast a lot. US280 between Columbus and Tifton is mostly 4 lane divided, just adhere to the speed limits, every small town seems to have a local cop just looking for speeders.

We've also driven US280 between Columbus and Birmingham a few times. Easy road.

oh - Monteagle, TN - big downhill on I-24 from North to South. Use a low gear.
