Construction crews to widen Walnut Grove Road, Farm Road starting next week


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Starting next week, crews will be working on Walnut Grove Road near the Farm Road intersection.

According to the City of Memphis, the work is necessary as crews work to extend the eastbound left turn lane at the intersection, as well as extending the acceleration lane for the southbound lanes of Farm Road to westbound Walnut Grove turn.

During the first phase of the plan, a single lane will be closed heading westbound.

Once that’s finished, one lane heading eastbound will be closed.

The closures will not take place during peak driving times in the morning and the evening.

Lane closures will also only take place one direction at a time.

The project is expected to take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.
