Travel directions

State Route 22 is a somewhat secondary route on the southern stretch and mainly visits some villages. From Lexington, the road has a somewhat more through importance and is a four-lane road. It crosses Interstate 40, whereupon the route veers northwest from Huntingdon. The area has less forest here. There are bypasses around most of the towns, such as McKenzie, Gleason and Dresden. From the east side of Martin, State Route 22 is a 2×2 lane freeway to US 45W in Union City.


The northern part of State Route 22 is a fairly important thoroughfare for interregional traffic. The road has therefore been expanded with 4 lanes, but is not everywhere a divided highway. The section between Martin and Union City was later expanded as a freeway . The oldest part of this is the Martin bypass and the connecting section to the south side of Union City, which opened as early as the mid-1990s. The eastern bypass of Union City was opened around 2000, an exact opening date cannot be given here.

State Route 385 or SR-385 is a state route and freeway in the U.S. state of Tennessee. The highway forms a partial ring road around and through the eastern and northern suburbs of Memphis. The highway is 77 kilometers long.

Travel directions

State Route 385 has two parts. The east-west portion runs from I-240 on the southeast side of Memphis to I-269 at Collierville. This section is a freeway with 2×2 to 2×3 lanes and is characterized by the large number of SPUI connections. This part of SR-385 forms the primary access to the large suburbs of Germantown and Collierville.

The second section forms a north-south section along the eastern suburbs of Memphis and coincides with Interstate 269. This part has 2×2 lanes and runs through a more sparsely built exurbaan area, quite well outside Memphis. At Arlington there is an interchange with I-40. At Millington, north of Memphis, SR-385 terminates at a junction with US 51.


The first section of the highway was on the north side of the conurbation, between US 51 in Millington and State Route 204, which opened about 1982. On September 25, 1998, an eastbound extension to US 70 opened in Arlington. In December 1999, the section opened up to I-40.

Construction on the southern section began in 1990, and on December 24, 1993, the first 2 miles east of I-240 opened. On December 22, 1995, an extension to Riverdale Road for 2 miles opened. On December 29, 1997, an extension to Houston Levee Road, a stretch of approximately 12 kilometers, opened. In October 1999, an extension to Byhalia Road, a stretch of just over 2 miles, opened. In 2005 the road to US 72 was extended and on August 23, 2007 over 4 kilometers.

The eastern section was first opened on August 31, 2007 between I-40 and US 64 for 6 kilometers. In June 2009 it was extended to Macon Road for 7 kilometers. On November 22, 2013, the last missing link of 13 kilometers opened at Collierville. Since 2018, the section between I-40 and the Mississippi border has been signposted as part of Interstate 269.
