Work to Halt Traffic on I-40 in Memphis This Morning

MEMPHIS, TN - Overnight delays of up to 30 minutes are expected early today and this morning, tonight and early tomorrow on a stretch of Interstate-40 in Memphis.

The Tennessee Dept. of Transportation will stop traffic between Levee Road and Chelsea Avenue between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. to install new overhead message boards.

The work is part of TDOT's SmartWay system, a $31.5 million project made up of a network of traffic cameras, overhead message boards and highway advisory radio transmitters.
