West of downtown Nashville, I-440 heads south from I-40 and goes on to meet U.S. Route 70S before turning due east. I-440 then intersects U.S. Route 431 and later, I-65 south of downtown Nashville. I-440 then turns northeast and meets with U.S. Route 31A/U.S. Route 41A before terminating at I–24, west of the Nashville International Airport.[3]
