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.
