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.
