Mississippi

U.S. Highway 78 is completely controlled-access freeway from the Tennessee state line all the way to Graysville, Alabama. Although not currently a part of the U.S. Interstate system, it is now on its way to becoming Interstate 22, which will run from Memphis to Birmingham. At the time the highway was reconstructed to freeway standards, conversion to an interstate was not considered likely. As a result of that and the fact that Tennessee has never upgraded its portion from the state line to Interstate 240, at least two projects are required to raise Mississippi's entire U.S. 78 segment to interstate standards: reconstruction of a substandard interchange at New Albany and the addition of a new interchange at or near Memphis to tie the freeway to another interstate. According to information available at the Project Updates and Media Room sections of the Mississippi Department of Transportation's website (www.gomdot.com), this new interchange will be in Mississippi and operational once construction of the relevant segment is complete on the new Interstate 269.

History

In western Alabama, the historical name of U.S. 78 is the Bankhead Highway. It is also known by this name in portions of Atlanta, and the Bankhead neighborhood takes its name from that stretch of road.

The Bankhead Highway was a United States cross-country automobile highway connecting Washington and San Diego. ...

Future

There is a freeway portion of US 78 that begins from the Tennessee / Mississippi border near southeast Memphis and continues through Mississippi to Graysville, Alabama, and the freeway is under construction all the way to Birmingham, Alabama, where it will junction with Interstate 65 and U.S. Highway 31. Although there are major Interstate highways near this freeway's endpoints, it is a discrete segment of controlled-access freeway. This will change over the next few years as it is upgraded to become the new Interstate 22. It is uncertain whether US 78 will be decommissioned west of Birmingham or the old route recommissioned as US 78 upon completion of Interstate 22.
