State Route 14 (abbreviated SR-14) is a south–north route from the Mississippi border in Memphis, Tennessee to intersect with State Route 54 in Tipton County.

Route description[edit]

State Route 14 begins concurrent to U.S. Route 61 at the Mississippi border. U.S. Route 61 and State Route 14 travel northward into Memphis. After passing Interstate 55 Exit 7, State Route 14 intersects E.H. Crump Boulevard, at which point U.S. Route 61 heads westward to cross the Mississippi River. Up until this point, SR 14 is unsigned. State Route 14 continues north along Second and Third Streets. After passing under Interstate 40 Exit 1A, the route goes eastward along A.W. Willis Avenue, turns north onto Danny Thomas Blvd, and turns east onto Jackson Avenue. On Jackson Avenue, State Route 14 passes through north Memphis, intersecting Interstate 40 / Interstate 240 twice. The route heads north at that point as the Austin Peay Highway, passing through the neighborhood of Raleigh. Outside of Memphis, SR 14 is a two-lane highway with a 55 MPH speed limit. It has an interchange with Interstate 269, formerly part of State Route 385, north of the Loosahatchie River. State Route 14 continues northeast, enters Tipton County, and ends at State Route 54 in the tiny community of Cotton Lake, just before State Route 54 crosses the Hatchie River.[1]

The Tipton County portion from the Shelby County line to just the northeast of State Route 384 is a four-lane divided highway. Long term plans include expanding the Shelby County portion to at least four lanes as well. Construction is currently underway on this expansion between SR 204 (Singleton Parkway/New Covington Pike) and Old Covington Pike.
