Closures set for MemFix4 project on I-240
Closures set for MemFix4 project on I-240 in Memphis
Posted on 07/10/2018
To accommodate an expected increase in traffic near the upcoming weekend closures of Poplar Avenue and Interstate 240 as part of the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s MemFix 4 project, we’re adjusting traffic signal timing on a number of routes.

Adjustments will be made on these streets:

● Poplar Avenue (from Highland Street to Kirby Parkway)
● Walnut Grove Road (from Highland to I-240)
● Park Avenue/Poplar Pike (from Highland to Kirby)
● Quince Road (from Cherry Road to Ridgeway Road)
● Mt. Moriah Road (from Willow Road to Kirby)
● American Way (from Getwell Road to Mt. Moriah)
● Germantown Parkway (from Walnut Bend Road to U.S. Highway 64)
● Summer Avenue (from Highland to White Station Road)
● White Station Road (from Willow to Summer)
● Perkins Road (from American Way to Summer)
● Mendenhall Road/Mt. Moriah (from Quince to Summer)
● Ridgeway Road (from Mt. Moriah to Poplar)

During the closures, our Traffic Engineering Department will be collecting data in an effort to fine-tune timing for future weekend closures. TDOT estimates large-scale closures in and around I-240 for nine to 12 weekends through June 2019.

More information about MemFix 4 is available here. We will be sharing TDOT’s closure information on our social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Nextdoor), too.

Full closures are planned for:
● Friday, July 13, 9 p.m. until Monday, July 16, 6 a.m. – Poplar Avenue eastbound will be closed at the I-240 interchange. I-240 will remain open.
● Friday, July 13, midnight until Monday, July 16, 6 a.m. – Poplar Avenue westbound will be closed at the I-240 interchange. The I-240 eastbound ramp to Poplar Avenue westbound will be closed. I-240 will remain open.
● Friday, July 20, 9 p.m. until Monday, July 23, 6 a.m. – FULL CLOSURE of I-240 east and westbound and Poplar Avenue east and westbound.
● Friday, July 27, 9 p.m. until Monday, July 30, 6 a.m. – FULL CLOSURE of I-240 east and westbound and Poplar Avenue east and westbound.
