Interstate 40 Reconstruction

Shelby County
Shelby I-40 Reconstruction

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) plans to reconstruct the roadway surface on Interstate 40 in Shelby County. The proposed project, which stretches from the Levee Road overpass to the interchange with Hollywood Street, will replace the existing concrete pavement with an asphalt surface. The current concrete pavement has deteriorated due to Alkali Silica Reactivity (ASR), a chemical reaction in the concrete that causes distress, faulting, and pop-outs. No other modifications to this section of I-40 are planned at this time.

Current Status: This project is currently under development.

Estimated construction start: This project is scheduled in TDOT’s 10-Year Project Plan to begin construction in Fiscal Year 2026.

Estimated completion*: TBD

Funding Type: TDOT anticipates that a portion of this project will be funded through the Transportation Modernization Fund.
