|South end:||SR 69 north of Paris|
| US 79 / SR 76 west of Paris
US 641 / SR 69 in Paris
US 79 / SR 76 east of Paris
|North end:||SR 140 in Buchanan|
The northern section from SR-69 to U.S. Route 79 (US-79) is unfinished and under construction. When finished, the route will make a complete bypass around Paris. It is signed in a rather odd way, from SR-69 to its first junction with US-79 the southbound lane is signed as it is going north and the northbound lane is signed as it is going south on the west side of Paris.
It currently begins at an intersection with SR-69 north of Paris. The route travels to the south to intersect SR-54 on the west side of Paris. Just past this intersection, the highway turns to the southeast, and then intersects U.S. Route 79 (US-79) and turns east and travels just south of Paris city limits. It then enters the city limits of Paris and intersects US-641/SR-69. Then, the route begins to gradually turn north. The route then comes to an end at US-79 on the east side of Paris. At this intersection the route will, when completed, travel straight and loop back to SR-69 north of Paris.
The entire route is in Henry County.
