The route begins at the interchange with US 43 and the western terminus of it's multiplex with US 412, as Hampshire Pike. Tennessee State Route 50 intersects the route from Williamsport Pike, and joins the route in a concurrency until after they cross a bridge over Bigby Creek, and TN 50 turns south onto James Campbell Boulevard West. From there, the name of Hampshire Pike becomes West Seventh Street. From there the route runs along the north side of the historic Columbia Arsenal, and several blocks after a railroad crossing it serves as the northern terminus of Tennessee State Route 243. Closer to downtown Columbia, the road becomes line with more historic sites along with some locally notable ones, such as the West Seventh Church of Christ and the Oakes and Nichols Funeral Home, then the NRHP-listed Robert Church House, and across from that the headquarters for WKRM-AM/WKOM-FM. This is followed by the St. Peter's Episcopal Church across from the local Knights of Columbus chapter, and then the James K. Polk Ancestral Home and Sisters' House across from the Maury County Visitor's Center.

Entering the Columbia Commercial Historic District, West Seventh Street approaches Maury County Courthouse Square, but one block before that street circles around the courthouse, US BUS 412, joins a northbound multiplex with US 31 (North Garden Street). Beginning at Third Street, US 31/BUS 412 curves from straight north to northeast and after the intersection with Tennessee State Route 7 crosses a bridge over Duck River, then curves even more towards the northeast as it becomes the Nashville Highway, a standard four-lane divided commercial strip. US 412 Business ends at the northern terminus of US 43, while US 31 continues north along Tennessee State Route 6, as US 412/Tennessee State Route 99 continues east towards I-65.
