MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) announced Friday its plan to complete infrastructure improvements on the I-55 and Crump interchange, including I-55 bridge repairs.

The I-55 bridge and work zone area could see up to eight weekend full closures from 8 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday and two two-week closures will be allowed for work that cannot be performed while maintaining traffic through the worksite.

The improvements to the I-55 and Crump Boulevard interchange include constructing new through travel lanes for mainline I-55 traffic, which will eliminate the requirement for interstate traffic to use single-lane, low-speed ramps to continue on I-55.

A new multi-lane roundabout intersection will be constructed to replace the existing cloverleaf interchange and provide improved access to and from I-55 and existing local roadways. The project will also include repairs to the I-55 river bridge deck.

The project is scheduled to begin in April 2022 and is estimated to be completed in early 2025.
