State Route 220 (SR-220) is a 14.2-mile-long (22.9 km) state highway that travels entirely within Carroll County in the western portion of the U.S. state of Tennessee.

Route description[edit]

SR-220 begins at an intersection with US-70/SR-1/SR-104 (Broadway of America) in the community of Cedar Grove. It travels to the west and curves to the northwest. After a westward jog through Lavinia, it turns to the north-northeast, along the eastern edge of the Milan Army Ammunition Plant. It briefly has a concurrency with SR-104 in the community of Whitthorne. The highway then stairsteps its way to the northwest to the town of Atwood where the route meets its northern terminus, an intersection with US-70A/US-79 /SR-76/SR-77 (Main Street).[1]

SR-220 is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]

Alternate route[edit]

State Route 220A
Location: Atwood
Length: 1.5 mi[3] (2.4 km)

SR-220 is one of only three Tennessee State Routes that have alternate routes. State Route 220 Alternate (SR-220 Alt. or SR 220A) is an alternate route that travels from the SR-220 mainline on the south side of Atwood to US-70A on the east side of town. Its east–west portion is known as Johnson Road, and its north–south portion is known as Norris Robinson Loop.

SR-220 Alt. begins at an intersection with the SR-220 mainline (Church Street) in the southeastern part of Atwood. Less than 500 feet (150 m) later, it leaves the city limits of town. At Norris Robinson Loop, the highway turns left and follows that road until they meet their northern terminus, an intersection with US-70A/SR-77 in the eastern part of town.[3]

SR-220 Alternate is not part of the National Highway System, a system of roadways important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility.[2]

The entire route is in Carroll County.
