Upcoming Lane Closures Across West Tennessee Detailed

Lane closures are planned in West Tennessee for various roadway projects.

West Tennessee is set to experience a series of lane closures across multiple counties due to a range of roadway projects. These closures, scheduled for both daytime and nighttime, will facilitate repairs, installations, and resurfacing efforts in Region 4, affecting 21 counties.

In Dyer County, significant work includes the repair of the bridge over the North Fork Forked Deer River on US 412 (SR 20), with traffic reduced to one lane in each direction starting April 10, 2023. Notably, on April 25 and 26, 2024, US 412 will be closed for beam replacement, with detailed detour routes provided to guide drivers.

Further, in Gibson and Carroll Counties, the construction on US 79 (SR 76) will lead to temporary lane closures. This project encompasses grading, drainage, and paving work, and has resulted in the permanent closure of Barker Road, with detours in place.

Obion County highlights the opening of SR 690 (Future I-69) to traffic, albeit with reduced speed limits and ongoing construction on closed ramps.

Crockett, Haywood, and Henderson Counties will see resurfacing and repair works on several state routes, causing temporary lane closures but ensuring one lane remains open at all times.

Madison County is also on the list, with US 412 and the US 45 Bypass seeing temporary closures for asphalt repair and crack sealing.

In Shelby County, a variety of projects are underway, including bridge repairs, resurfacing, and safety improvements on several routes like SR-385, SR-14 (Austin Peay Highway), and I-240. Notably, the Shady Grove Rd. Bridge over I-240 will be closed until August 30 for repairs. Various routes in downtown Memphis and surrounding areas will experience intermittent lane closures for curb ramp installation and resurfacing work.

Tipton County will implement safety improvements on US-51 at Kenwood Avenue, with daily lane closures planned.

Additionally, non-TDOT work in Shelby County on SR-177 (Germantown Road) will see long-term lane closures for widening and intersection improvements.
