MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The $141.2 million project on the I-55 and Crump Interchange, set to kick off Monday night, is now postponed.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation says due to weather, construction is postponed until next Monday night on June 13.

Crews will temporarily close lanes from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day on I-55 southbound from the south end of the I-55 bridge to near Wisconsin Avenue. The installment of a barrier rail will result in lane closures that are projected to last about eight months.

The I-55 southbound ramp will be reduced to one lane.

I-55 southbound will close the shoulder and one lane leaving two lanes open.
