I-55 closings planned Monday night at W. Memphis

WEST MEMPHIS, AR (AP) - The state Highway and Transportation Department says drivers traveling on Interstate 55 in the West Memphis area should be alert Monday night for occasional closures.

The agency said in a news release that removal of steel beams from an overpass at the highway's intersection with I-40, on the west side of town, would require closure of northbound main lanes on I-55 for up to 10 minutes at a time. The release said the work would begin about 11 p.m. and be finished by 5 a.m.
