What You Need To Know About The Flyover Construction

Crews have begun work on a new construction project at the I-40 / I-240 flyover.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

That means major headaches in one of the area’s busiest interchanges.

The $109 million undertaking will widen Sam Cooper by one lane each way.

I-240 from Walnut Grove to the interchange and from the interchange to Covington Pike will also be widened.

The portions of I-40 on the interchange will become two lanes.

Right now about 200,000 vehicles travel that interchange each day.
