I-240 lane closures impact weekend travelers

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Lane closures along portions of Interstate 240 will impact drivers this weekend. The area near the flyover at I-240 and the I-40 interchange is the area drivers will want to avoid.

Crews are continuing work on the new east and westbound flyover ramps.

Expect to see closures at the following locations:

  • I-240 East (northbound) beginning at Exit 12C (northbound I-240 exit to go I-40 eastbound)
  • I-240 East (northbound) at Exit 12B to go westbound Sam Cooper
  • Sam Cooper westbound Exit 10B to go I-240 East (northbound)

The closures start Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and will end Sunday, Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m. Drivers should use Highway 385 as an alternate route.
