Tennessee State Route 449 (SR-449) is a 6.2-mile-long (10.0 km) north–south state highway in Sevier County, within the eastern part of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It travels from U.S. Route 411 (US-411; Dolly Parton Parkway) overlaying Veterans Boulevard and some of Middle Creek Road in Sevierville south to US-441/US-321 (Great Smoky Mountains Parkway) in Pigeon Forge. It serves as a bypass around the busy tourist areas in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.

SR-449 is a more direct route to Dollywood and Dollywood's Splash Country when traveling from the north. This route avoids the congested traffic areas along the Great Smoky Mountains Parkway through Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.

Route description[edit]

SR-449 begins at an intersection with US-321/US-441/SR-71/SR-73 (Great Smoky Mountains Parkway) in Pigeon Forge. It travels to the northeast, crossing over the West Prong Little Pigeon River, before making a wide curve to the northwest. Then, it curves to the north and enters Sevierville. It meets its northern terminus, an intersection with US-411/SR-35 (Dolly Parton Parkway) in the northeastern part of the city.[1]

History[edit]

The route was initially signed as Veterans Boulevard and, as of July 2013, SR-449 is also signed as a state highway.
