Corridor V is part of the Appalachian Development Highway System. It is located in the U.S. states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. Its termini are I-55 in Batesville, Mississippi, and I-24 west of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

As of 2005, the following portions of Corridor V are not completed:

* Between Red Bay, Alabama and Fulton, Mississippi (designated MS 76).
* Relocated US 278/MS 6 between Tupelo and Pontotoc, Mississippi.

Both sections of highway are currently under design by the Mississippi Department of Transportation, with the portion that will overlap MS 25 already under construction near Fulton.

Sections of Alabama State Route 24 in Red Bay and just west of Russellville are under construction, with completion dates for the Red Bay bypass set near the end of 2007.

Corridor V between Batesville and Fulton was also designated as National Highway System High Priority Corridor 42 and a Future Interstate Corridor as part of the 1998 Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century; originally, Corridor 42 also included an overlap with Corridor X between Fulton and Birmingham, Alabama, but this overlap was removed in subsequent legislation. [Federal Highway Administration, [http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/hep10/nhs/hipricorridors/hpcfi.htm "NHS High Priority Corridors designated as Future Interstates"] , retrieved 16 September, 2007] [Federal Highway Administration, [http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/reports/routefinder/index.cfm#s06 "FHWA Route Log and Finder List"] , retrieved 16 September, 2007] However, the portion of the route between Batesville and Tupelo is only being constructed to four-lane divided highway standards, making Interstate highway designation unlikely in the near future.

Corridor V was also designated as High Priority Corridor 11 in the National Highway System Designation Act of 1995.
