Briley Pkwy from Opryland to I-40 West

We are leaving Opryland heading towards Memphis around 9:00 am. Would it be better to stay on 155 all the way to I-40 West than to take 65/24 to I-40 to avoid morning traffic?

Thanks for any suggestions.

By 9:00 am either route will probably be within 2 minutes of each other, but I'd still take Briley all the way to I-40 on the west side because you'll have fewer interchanges to go through. Westbound traffic from I-65 to I-40 is almost always light.

Going from the Opryland area going West on I-40 towards Memphis, I would always take Briley Parkway North / West to I-40. The road is much less traveled, smoother and less likely to have any major backups.
