(Memphis) The I-240 widening project is scheduled to be done this summer.
The project was scheduled to be completed in June of 2013 but there were two issues that caused delays.
One problem had to do with paving while the other was with a bridge.
The project which was projected to cost $41 million included the widening of I-240 from 385 to Walnut Grove to four lanes each direction as well as work on the Poplar Avenue bridge which crosses I-240.
Construction has already begun on the I-40/I-240 interchange and will continue for at least three years.
