Future Interstate 22

Interstate 22 is a east-west highway across Northern Mississippi. This will run from the Mississippi/Alabama State Line to the Greater-Memphis Area, via Tupelo and Holly Springs. It passes through the Holly Springs National Forest. This runs along the U.S. Rt. 78 corridor. This highway will be signed Interstate 22 once the portions in Alabama is complete. When that is done, the interstate highway between Birmingham and Greater-Mamphis will be complete. One item left to be determined is how this highway will connect into the Memphis interstate system. For that there are several ideas. One being it will use the Future Interstate 269 to Interstate 55. The next idea is upgrading U.S. Rt. 78 to Interstate 240.
