The highway begins at an intersection with SR-50 in Lynchburg. SR-55 travels northeast as Fayetteville Highway, then it changes to Majors Boulevard in downtown Lynchburg. After leaving town, the highway is called Lynchburg Highway as it goes northeast toward Tullahoma.
Upon entering Tullahoma, SR-55 crosses into Coffee County and changes names to Wilson Avenue. It starts a concurrency with SR-130 and continues eastward until both routes become concurrent with US-41A/SR-16. These routes go southeastward through downtown as North Jackson Street and later South Jackson St. SR-55 leaves the concurrency and goes northeast as East Carroll Street while SR-130 goes southwest on West Carroll Street. SR-55 leaves Tullahoma and becomes New Manchester Highway and then New Tullahoma Highway as it nears Manchester. It soon becomes McArthur Street and continues straight through downtown Manchester, intersecting US-41/SR-2 and I-24.
It leaves Manchester and becomes McMinnville Highway. It continues northeast, into Warren County and through Morrison before becoming the southwestern part of the McMinnville Bypass. SR-55 continues on the bypass as H.T. Pelham Memorial Parkway before terminating at US-70S/SR-1 as those highways continue along the rest of the bypass around McMinnville.
