State Route 209 (SR-209) is a 17.5-mile-long (28.2 km) state highway in Lauderdale County in the western portion of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It connects U.S. Route 51 (US-51) with the cities and towns of Henning, Ripley and Gates and, via SR-88, Halls.
SR-209 begins at an intersection with US-51/SR-3 south of Henning. It then proceeds northeastward and enters the Henning city limits and in downtown Henning SR-209 has a brief concurrency with SR-87. It then continues northward and enters Ripley city limits. It has a half-interchange with SR-19 and enters downtown Ripley and serves as the southern terminus for SR-208. After this it mainly enters rural countryside and follows a railroad line for about seven miles (11 km) until it reaches the town of Gates where it has a brief concurrency with SR-180 and ends at an intersection with SR-88 and SR-180.
All of SR-209 is a former alignment of US-51.
The entire route is in Lauderdale County.
