MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Drivers will notice major construction and closures this weekend as the I-40/I-240 flyover project surges forward.

Crews will be working on the I-40/I-240 flyover from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. As a result, there will be lane closures.

The left lanes heading both eastbound and westbound on I-40 will be closed just north of Covington Pike. This will cause traffic to slow down.

The delays are expected to begin eastbound on I-240 around Walnut Grove Road and westbound on I-240 as you head toward Walnut Grove. Drivers on Sam Cooper Boulevard can also expect delays.

Remember this weekend as you make your plans, Highway 385 is your friend.
