Welcome to the I-40/I-240 Interchange Improvement Project site which will provide you with the stages and progress as the project develops.
The I-40/I-240 Interchange Improvement Project is the construction of a four-level interchange that will improve traffic flow for east and westbound traffic on Interstates 40 and 240.
Rapid growth on the east side of Memphis has caused significant traffic congestion and safety issues at the I-40/I-240 Interchange in recent years. As the communities surrounding I-40/I-240 continue to grow, the interchange is projected to handle more than 350,000 vehicles daily by 2035. The construction of new ramps and the widening of I-240 will improve traffic flow not only on Interstates 40 and 240, but also on nearby roads that feed into the interstate system.
Once completed, the I-40/I-240 Interchange will be a four level interchange with the highest level towering more than 75 feet above Sam Cooper Boulevard.
|Start Date Fall 2013||End Date Summer 2017|
