Upcoming Lane Closures Across West Tennessee Announced

TDOT announces lane closures for maintenance and construction in West Tennessee.

The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has released a comprehensive schedule of anticipated lane closures across West Tennessee from March 13 to March 20, 2024, to facilitate a range of infrastructure maintenance and improvement projects. Motorists traveling through the region are advised to plan ahead to accommodate possible delays or detours.

The affected areas span across 21 counties in Region 4, including notable projects in Carroll, Dyer, Gibson, Obion, Lauderdale, and Shelby counties. These projects encompass pavement repairs, resurfacing, bridge repairs, noise wall construction, and safety enhancements such as the installation of new cable barrier rails and storm drainage systems.

In Carroll County, travelers can expect daytime lane closures on US 70A (SR 22BP) for resurfacing efforts, while Dyer County will see lane restrictions on SR-20 over the North Fork Forked Deer River due to bridge repairs, beginning April 10, 2023. Gibson and Carroll counties will experience temporary lane closures due to the construction of a concrete box bridge and paving on US 79 (SR 76).

Major interstate work includes shoulder work on I-40, I-55, I-269, SR 385, and SR 300 in Fayette, Madison, and Shelby Counties, with notable nighttime closures on I-269. Shelby County will also witness significant activity, including closures on I-55 for the repair of the Third Street Bridge and construction activities on the I-55 and Crump interchange. Additional lane closures are expected on SR-57 (Poplar Ave.) in Collierville and SR-175 (Shelby Drive) for safety improvements and resurfacing.

Furthermore, non-TDOT work on SR-177 (Germantown Road) in Shelby County will see long-term lane closures for widening and intersection improvements. Motorists are encouraged to subscribe to the TDOT_REGION4_LANE_CLOSURES email list for real-time updates on lane closures and to utilize the TNSmartWay website or dial 511 for travel information.

TDOT reminds drivers to be mindful of the work zones, adhere to posted speed limits, and never use mobile devices while driving. With careful planning and patience, motorists can navigate these temporary disruptions safely and efficiently.
