MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Give yourself some extra driving time if your commute takes you to the I-40/I-240 flyover.

For the next four months, construction at the flyover will cost drivers a lot of time and frustration as TDOT crews enter a new phase of construction.

Additional lanes along the highway will close. Drivers going from I-240 eastbound to I-40 eastbound will be required to merge into one lane on the outer edge of the ramp.

The changes went into effect at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

The ramps on both east and westbound I-40 from I-240 east will be closed beginning April 11-12. Eastbound drivers will see four lanes reduced to three from Walnut Grove Road to I-40.

Drivers will only have one lane to exit I-240 onto I-40 toward Nashville, adding more problems to an already congested area.
