  • Independent Hill Road in West Rutherford County off state Route 96 West (Franklin Highway)
  • State Route 96 West at Coleman Hill Road.

  • Cynthia Lane off U.S. Highway 231 (Shelbyville Highway).
  • Burnt Knob Road near Almaville.
  • Interstate 24 at the 86-mile marker near Joe B. Jackson Parkway.
  • Old Nashville Highway at Scenic Drive.
