MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation will begin to put up signs for the $4.2 million Perkins Extended paving project this weekend.

Approximately 2.3 miles of Poplar Avenue between Perkins Extended and I-240 will be repaved with a completion date of Sept. 30, according to TDOT.

Crews will work on the project seven days a week starting March 27.

Drivers can expect lane closures between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Daytime single-lane closures will take place between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

TDOT says Poplar Ave. sees approximately 47,000 vehicles a day and asks that drivers plan ahead and look for alternate routes.
