Interstate 55 – Mississippi to Interstate 240 – Tennessee

Drive America’s Highways for 6 miles along Interstate 55 from Mississippi to Interstate 240 in Memphis, Tennessee

We start the video driving north on I-55 just before the Tennessee border in Mississippi. Crossing State Line Road, we enter TN and continue generally north, passing a Welcome Center as well as an alternate route to the Memphis Airport.

Just before we end the video at the Interstate 240 / Interstate 69 interchange, we cross the junction with U.S. Highway 51, which will take you to Graceland and back to Mississippi or to Downtown Memphis.

    A rest stop along an eight lane urban interstate. Something you don't see every day.Also the hard core latitude longitude convergence geeks will tell you that 90 W 35 N is very close to this video, in fact, in the front lawn of a house a little bit east of the highway right-of-way.

      I was quite surprised that WC was there myself. Interesting about the lat/long — never gave that stuff much attention, even with my road map love 🙂

      90 degrees west comes pretty close to St. Louis, so I have kinda paid that line of longitude special attention in life. You already know about 90 W 35 N, and I know that 90 W 30 N is in the city of New Orleans, but in an undeveloped swamp.

      @countenanceblog the expat That's because I-55 runs through only Memphis within the Tennessee state lines therefore making it a rarity and, as far as I know, it's the only Interstate in Tennessee with that distinction.
