The Memphis PD is having issues with CMV trucks going through the city because of GPS navigation issues.  

The majority of the CMV trucks are going north on I-55 near the river, but the GPS often says to keep going straight and not stay on I-55 and head West over the river.  However, going straight means running straight into the construction (in red) on Riverside Drive. Memphis PD has seen many CMV trucks driving through the city because they are lost and trying to turn around. See the photo attached. 

The best route to take is I-240 North (physical signs say I-240, but Google Maps shows the updated I-69).  This Riverside Drive closure will be well into 2024, so it will be long-term.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the Memphis PD or Tennessee Trucking Association if you have any questions, or need further information.
