Bridge work will affect I-40 traffic in W. Tenn

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Work on two bridges over Interstate 40 in West Tennessee will affect weekend traffic.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation said crews will be repairing Route 222 over I-40 in Fayette County, resulting in interstate traffic being detoured onto the ramps of the interchange and back onto the highway from Friday evening to early Monday.

TDOT also said there will temporary lane closures in Haywood County as crews remove part of the deck of Route 19 over I-40. Traffic will be diverted Saturday, using the interchange ramps.

A previously scheduled closure of one lane in each direction of I-40 at Jackson has been canceled because the contractor has completed a bridge painting project.
