MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Motorists traveling through Shelby County will begin to see construction activity and lane closures on Interstate 240 as a widening project gets underway.
Sunday, March 27 through Thursday, March 31 each night from 8:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m., construction crews will have one lane closed on I-240 East in order to begin installing concrete barrier rail.
Future lane closures for this project will also be conducted during the night time hours and weekends.
