MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The Tennessee Department of Transportation is expected to make a big announcement Tuesday regarding Interstate 40/240 construction.

TDOT said changes are coming to the I-40/240 loop, which for some, is a common cause of traffic headaches.

TDOT officials said to expect more expansion to the I-40/240 loop. They’re looking to add two more lanes near the flyover. That means drivers will have 13 lanes–six lanes westbound and seven lanes eastbound.

TDOT said the closures for these plans should happen at night and over the weekends to have the least impact on drivers.

TDOT expects to have the expansion completed by Spring or Summer of 2017.
