SR 357 begins at a partial interchange with SR 75 in Blountville, where the road continues east for a short distance, as Airport Parkway, into the main entrance of the Tri-Cities Regional Airport. It then goes west for a short distance before it turns north just before an interchange with Centenary Road. SR 357 then passes by a rock quarry before curving around a small ridge to have an interchange with Shipley Ferry Road. It then curves back around before ending at I-81 (Exit 263), where the road continues as narrow local road.
