MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A tractor trailer crash on I-40 eastbound is causing traffic blocks southwest of West Memphis on I-55.

There are also reports of a disabled vehicle in the area as well.

There is no word on when the crash will be cleared.

This is causing further delays to the I-40 bridge detour to I-55.

“We are aware of the traffic backup right now in West Memphis, we understand the wait times driving through and around W Memphis is difficult. With the recent lane changes in West Memphis, the goal was to ease congestions. Engineers with ARDOT and TDOT are discussing right now how to make things better,” says the public information officer for the Arkansas Department of Transportation, Dave Parker.

WMC Action News 5 will provide updates as they become available.
