I-240 construction temporarily finished

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Construction work along part of I-240 is now complete. Workers finished more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.

Laborers began early Saturday morning on Poplar Avenue at I-240. It was scheduled to last until 6 p.m. Sunday.

Drivers do admit the area can be frustrating.

"Yeah, I work in DeSoto County and avoid this area is possible. But, when we do come this way, it can be a bit of a headache," stated driver Gardner Mounce.

Westbound lanes were shut down for most of the day.

Poplar's eastbound lanes over I-240 will be closed September 21st and 22nd.
