Two Hurt In Crash At West I-40 At I-240
(Memphis) The ramp to continue on I-40 west at I-240 is back open after being closed for several hours due to a crash.
An adult and a child were taken to area hospitals.
One car was blocking the ramp.
It’s not clear if there are injuries.
Saturday, TDOT took away a lane in that area.
Drivers aren’t forced to make a lane choice until they get right to where cones have been set up, which is causing cars to stop traffic and in some cases, cut across traffic from the beginning of the I-240 on ramp.
It’s not clear if TDOT will start the cones earlier to avoid this now that there has been a crash.
The right Sam Cooper lane will be closed for at least 18 months while the entire project is expected to take three years.
