Interesting thoughts on the subject. I could definitely agree with more bridges in Memphis/ Big Shelby. Especially with creating a western loop around West Memphis.

Last section of I-269 set to open Oct. 26, completing new loop around Memphis

I-269’s 25 miles in Mississippi cost $640 million to build starting in 2011. An uninterrupted interstate from Tunica to I-55 to Interstate 40 in Tennessee has powerful implications for the region’s economy, Tagert said. “That’s very meaningful when you think about manufacturing, warehousing and logistics,” Tagert said. It also will make local roads safer and reduce wear and tear on roads associated with larger trucks.
