MEMPHIS, Tenn. -  Drivers should expect some slow downs this weekend getting to and from downtown Memphis.

A section of I-55 between McLemore and South Parkway will be closed until 6 a.m. Monday morning.

I-55 Southbound local traffic will have access to Exit 11 (West McLemore Avenue/Presidents Island)
