U.S. Route 641 (US 641) is a U.S. Route in Tennessee and Kentucky. It currently runs for 132 miles (212 km) from an interchange with I‑40 near Holladay, Tennessee to an intersection with US 60 in Marion, Kentucky. While it is considered a spur route of U.S. Route 41, US 641 does not currently connect to it.

Route description[edit]

Tennessee[edit]

US 641 begins at an interchange with I‑40 near Holladay, and is concurrent with SR 69.[1] US 641 intersects US 70 in Camden.[2] In Paris, US 641 intersects US 79; it also separates from SR-69 and begins a concurrency with SR 54 that it maintains until the Kentucky state line.[3]

Kentucky[edit]

US 641 enters Kentucky at Hazel and continues north to Murray, intersecting KY 80 just north of the city limit.[4] Near Benton, a spur route (Spur US 641) provides access to I‑69 (the Purchase Parkway) while the main route travels through the city.[5] US 641 has a concurrency with US 62 beginning near Calvert City; the routes cross I‑24 / I‑69 before separating in Eddyville.[6][7] The route intersects KY 70 in Fredonia.[8] The US 641 designation ends at US 60 in Marion.[9]

History[edit]

U.S. Route 641 was created as a 149-mile (240 km) highway from Paris, Tennessee to Evansville, Indiana. In 1972, its route was truncated in the north. Its northern section from Marion, Kentucky to Evansville, which was concurrent with U.S. Route 60, was eliminated and its northern terminus has since remained Marion. In 1977, US 641 was extended southward along the path of Tennessee State Route 69 to its interchange with I-40 (Exit 126) near Holladay, Tennessee with SR 69 continuing south beyond the interchange.
