MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Drivers who plan to take I-55 over the Mississippi River will need to pack some patience for the next few weeks.
According to the Arkansas Department of Transportation, crews will be inspecting the bridge starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday. They will block the outside lane heading south this week. Next week, the outside northbound lane will be closed.
In all, authorities said the inspection process will last a few weeks.
It was originally scheduled to happen earlier this year but was put on hold after the I-40 bridge was shut down.
