MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A major construction project at the Interstate 55 and Crump Boulevard interchange will begin June 13.

The work was originally scheduled to begin June 6, but was delayed Monday due to severe weather, TDOT said.

TDOT says crews will be working from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on the southbound side of the interstate for the next eight months.

During construction, the I-55 southbound ramp from the bridge to Wisconsin Avenue will be down to one lane.

Two southbound lanes of the interstate will remain open.

The $141 million project will build new through-traffic lanes for I-55, eliminating the need for the slow-moving cloverleaf ramps at that interchange. A new roundabout will be built at Crump Boulevard. The project also includes repairs to the I-55 river bridge deck.

The entire project is expected to be complete in 2025, TDOT has said.
