A bridge repair project will cause temporary lanes closures on I-240 eastbound and westbound at Lamar Avenue (Exit #21) in Shelby County on Saturday, May 11 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. One lane will be open at all times in both directions.
Lane closures for this project could result in travel delays. Motorists are advised to plan ahead and avoid the area if at all possible. Law enforcement officers will be on site in the work zone to provide traffic control as the work is being completed. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state. All work is weather dependent.
