Creation: Appeared between 1965-69 as a new state route, running essentially the way it does now. This is the 2nd TN 31.
Adjustments: In 1985, TN 31 was extended south from today's Old Highway 11W to the new US 11W routing
In 2000, TN 31 was removed from Elrod Cir above Treadway; Cantwell Valley Rd/Jamie Dr in Luther
Posting: TN 31 is posted as primary routing throughout
Secret US Route Overlay: None
Comment: TN 31 ends just across the river from TN 33.
There is an Old SR 31 north of Luther but I believe this was already bypassed by the time TN 31 was commissioned.
