This is a reasonably good road, particularly after you get into Georgia.
It is, however, two-lane undivided road in at least some places. You can
also exit I-75 at Cleveland, TN, take Hwy. 40/64/74 (all three run
together at this point) to Hwy. 411 southbound. This is a better road.
You can then continue on 411 south to Cartersville, GA, or take Hwy. 76
west from 411 to I-75, rejoining the interstate near Dalton, GA.
Try to avoid hitting Chattanooga or Atlanta during rush hour. I can give
advice on alternate routes in/through Atlanta if you need it.
