Fort Myers business loop
|Location:||Fort Myers, Florida|
The road begins at the interchange of US 41 and SR 82-867, historically known as the Five Points Interchange. The road briefly overlaps SR 80 along Main and Monroe Streets, where it becomes discontinuous (it once continued east along with SR 80 though downtown along the then-one-way Second and Bay Streets but those streets were turned over to city control in 2006).
Business US 41 resumes along SR 739 at SR 80, where it runs along Park Avenue (northbound) and Fowler Street (southbound) until they reach the Edison Bridge where the two streets merge. After crossing over the Caloosahatchee River BUS 41 enters North Fort Myers where it briefly becomes a six-lane undivided highway only for the divider to return north of Cabanna Avenue. The road heads north, intersecting with State Road 78. Between State Road 78 and Powell Drive, the road becomes a four-lane divided highway for the remainder of the route. The road finally ends at a former wye at US 41.

Tampa business loop
|Length:||16.703 mi (26.881 km)|
|Existed:||1931 as US 541, 1951 as US 41 Bus.–present|
U.S. Route 41 Business is an alternate route to U.S. Route 41 in Tampa, Florida that begins on the Nebraska Avenue-Florida Avenue apex in Lutz and continues south on Florida Avenue. Just south of Hillsborough Avenue (U.S. Route 92), Florida Avenue becomes a one-way street and the south-bound portion splits off into Tampa Street until it reaches its southern terminus in Downtown Tampa at US 41 and State Road 676.
U.S. Route 541 was created in 1931 as a western alternate to US 41 between Palmetto and Tampa; US 41 then followed the present US 301 between those points. In 1938, US 41 was moved from Tampa north to Lutz, and the old route became an extension of US 541. US 541 was eliminated in 1951; the route north from Tampa became US 41 Business, while south from Tampa it became US 41, with old US 41 becoming an extension of US 301.
The entire route is in Hillsborough County.

It serves the city of Clarksville, Tennessee on its way to Nashville, where it briefly runs concurrently with US 41. It then separates again to serve Shelbyville, Winchester, and Tullahoma before rejoining the main route atop Monteagle Mountain. US 41A runs west of US 41 for its entire length, aside from one mile in downtown Nashville, where they are concurrent. US-41A is also concurrent with U.S. Route 31A from Nashville to Triune, Tennessee, for a distance of approximately 25 miles (40 km).
Clarksville alternate route bypass
U.S. Route 41A Bypass (US 41A Byp.) is a bypass of the city of Clarksville, Tennessee on its south side. It first splits off from the US 41A mainline at 2nd Street and Kraft, following Riverside Drive south along the Cumberland River, and then traveling concurrently with Tennessee State Route 76 past Tennessee State Route 13 and Tennessee State Route 48 where it begins bypass designation. The bypass travels to the east approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) along the edge of the Cumberland. Most of the road is a two-lane highway, occasionally widening to three lanes to accommodate truck traffic on hills. There is one light in the middle of the bypass, where Tennessee State Route 12 (Ashland City Highway) starts approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) before the bypass merges with US 41A (Madison Street) on the east side of Clarksville. From here, US 41A heads southeast to Nashville, Tennessee, where it merges with US 41.

Madisonville-Henderson alternate route
Known and referred to locally as "U.S. 41-A" but signed as "Alternate U.S. 41," this route follows what was the original route of U.S. 41 between the cities of Madisonville and Henderson, Kentucky. It travels largely from east to west from its southern terminus at U.S. 41 on Madisonville's north side until reaching Kentucky Route 814 east of Providence. From that point, the road begins its turn toward the north, passing mostly through rural areas but also serving the small communities of Dixon and Poole.
Major highways intersecting the route include:
- Kentucky Route 120, which runs from Marion to Slaughters
- Kentucky Route 132, which travels from Kentucky 120 through Clay and Dixon to Sebree
- Kentucky Route 56, which begins at the Ohio River near Old Shawneetown, Illinois and connects the Kentucky communities of Morganfield, Sebree, Beech Grove and Owensboro
- Kentucky Route 425, which serves as a southern bypass of Henderson
- and US 60, which is among the longest, if not the longest, highways in the state, which 41-A will join on the south side of Henderson for its final 4 miles.
41-A's northern terminus is at "The Cloverleaf," the interchange between U.S. 60 and U.S. 41/Pennyrile Parkway on Henderson's north side.

M-28, mirroring the Bus. US 41/Bus. M-28 designations along Bus. M-28 in Ishpeming and Negaunee.
