MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation says lane closures on I-55 will affect traffic in the coming days as crews work to restripe the roadway.

Due to the I-40 bridge being under repair, drivers are taking I-55 to cross over the Mississippi River bringing more traffic on the roads than usual.

TDOT crews will close ramps and lanes on I-55 at the Crump Interchange to restripe the road to improve traffic flow from Arkansas.

The repair will take place between May 22 at midnight through May 24 at 8 a.m.

The following will be closed:

  • Loop ramp from WB Crump to I-55 South
  • I-55 NB Entrance ramp from Metal Museum Dr.
  • I-55 NB Exit ramp to Metal Museum Dr.
  • I-55 SB Entrance ramp from Metal Museum

TDOT is asking that drivers continue to be mindful of crews working on the roadways.
