Is there really someone in the US that don't know about that I-40 bridge? OK its closed for a significant fracture in one of the main supporting beams and has been for some time.

If I knew the answer, I would not have asked the question in the first place.

Anyway, thanks for your thoughtful response.

According to media and the TN DOT website, the I-40 bridge over the Mississippi was fully reopened August 2nd. A scan of the interwebs found nothing to the contrary.

We must of have been dreaming couple of weeks ago as we crossed at Memphis using I40 bridge. Yes it had been closed for major repairs. We had to use the old bridge to cross going east 1st of August. But on return trip 3 weeks later was able to cross using I40 bridge. As far as we know, the I40 bridge is open...

The answer to your other question is yes there is another way. Hiway 51 north to I- 69 north to I-24 west to I-57 depending on where you’re coming from or going to there are several different ways.

I crossed the bridge this past Tuesday. It was open in both directions with no restrictions.
