Route History for US 25, US 25W, and US 25E in Tennessee
- (under construction)
- Paved in Tennessee in 1925 to around Bridgeport (but hard to tell because the main road did not follow the current US 25 out of Newport). In any case, this again wasn’t the current US 25 but was Fugate Rd and Old River Rd through Del Rio. By 1935 US 25 followed its current route and was paved.
- In 1925 the main road out of Newport to Hot Springs followed what is now US 321 and then possibly Fairfax Rd, and was not paved. By 1935 US 25 followed its current route and was paved.
- The entire route from North Carolina to Newport was paved by 1935.
