Consider Alternate Route into Memphis for Conference

Posted By Jeanine Akers, Monday, April 20, 2015

Be wary of the I40-240 Interchange.  It is undergoing a three-year improvement project.  Lane closures are prevalent and time consuming.


An alternative route you may consider:

Exit I-40 at Exit 25 (TN-385) going toward Collierville. Take the Ridgeway Road exit and merge onto Ridgeway Road. 

From Ridgeway Road – turn right onto Old Ridgeway Road

Turn left onto Quince Road

Turn right onto Ridgeway Road

Turn left onto Poplar Avenue

Take the Ridgeway Center Pkwy exit

Turn right onto Ridgeway Loop Road

Turn left onto Ridgeway Center Pkwy

Continue onto Ridge Lake Boulevard and Hilton Memphis will be on the left


All of these turns occur within about 3.5 miles.
