I'm taking a road trip for work and it has me going through Nashville. The question is, should I take 24 through Nashville or take 155 around?

This will be Wednesday anywhere from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

I'm guessing it's like most cities where it's a crap shoot, but interested in local opinions.

At those times barring a wreck I would probably just push thru downtown on 24. You could check TDOT smartway map before you get to the 155 exit and see what traffic looks like.

Watch google maps.   During that time you may be ok.   If downtown starts backing up, Briley/155 is your answer.

155 has less stress.  I never go through town anymore unless I absolutely have to.  However - any of the stress you avoid in Nashville will just reincarnate itself between Nashville and Clarksville…. Typically after you get back in 24 and start running good… then total heartbreak until about exit 4.

That's where 41 comes in handy.  Even w/ all the stops and lower speed limits, it is an easier drive during peak "talladega times" on 24.

I've got a feeling that @Prae is referring to 41 from Briley North to Clarksville --- to avoid touching I-24W.  Most all of that is rural.

Typically they're biting in the water  

Yep.  I'm talking about 41 from Cville to Briley.     Unless you like Bordeaux .LOL

As much as Nashvillians want to be a big city with all the trappings and problems, coming from Atlanta I laugh when locals complain about traffic.

The biggest problem with metro Nashville is the interstate layout.

You have to exit off the interstate you want to stay on to stay on the interstate you want to stay on.

Make sense?

Yep, clear as mud.
