Rejoice drivers, all but one of the I-40/240 east lanes are now open!

240-flyover

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — This will come as welcome news to many drivers.

Crews opened six of the seven lanes on I-40 East at the I-40/240 interchange overnight.

The original completion date was not until 2017.

There is still work to be done to reopen the Summer Avenue exit.

The following lanes are open:

  • I-240 to I-40 eastbound ramp (all three lanes)
  • I-40 eastbound flyover
  • Wolf River Bridge lanes

Sam Cooper Boulevard eastbound will open this weekend.

Crews are still working on the westbound lanes.

Everything is expected to be open by Thanksgiving.
