MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis drivers will have a better start to their morning Wednesday, as all lanes of the I-40/240 interchange will finally be open.

The seven eastbound lanes are already open.

The six westbound lanes will all be open by Wednesday morning, the Tennessee Department of Transportation announced.

TDOT crews will be working overnight to finish up the last bits of construction, which involves installing the last overhead sign and clearing the area of traffic control.

To do so, TDOT will need to close all westbound lanes for about 15 to 20 minutes around 9 p.m. Tuesday.
