State Route 96 is a long east–west highway in Middle Tennessee. The road begins in Dickson and ends in Granville. The current length is 128.2 mi (206.3 km).[1] Along its path it goes through 10 counties. Locals mostly refer to it as Highway 96.

Route description[edit]

The highway begins at an intersection with U.S. Route 70 as a Primary Highway in Dickson County. From there it travels through Williamson County, (briefly through the southwest corner of Davidson County), Rutherford County, Cannon County, Wilson County, and into DeKalb County where it again intersects with U.S. Route 70. About 7 mi (11.3 km) from this intersection, Route 96 breaks away from U.S. Route 70 as a secondary highway. The secondary portion of the highway as it leaves DeKalb County passes through Putnam County, (briefly through the eastern portion of Smith County), before reaching its eastern terminus at Tennessee SR-53 in Jackson County.
