New Federal Byway In Tennessee

Recommended Posts

A new Federal Byway has been approved in Tennessee, to be called the East

Tennessee Crossing. This will follow US 25E which includes the Dixie

Highway.

 

You can read more about it here at the Claiborne Progress on-line:

Appears to be a good byway with some nice stuff, like the Cumberland Gap, on it. The National Scenic Byways description contains the interesting phrase "the Dixie Highway of the Civil War period". I'm not quite sure what that means. It looks like the byway contains about 20 miles (from near Newport to the state line) of the Dixie Highway we all know and love.
