JACKSON, Tenn. — The Tennessee Department of Transportation has announced that all work planned for Saturday for Interstate 40 Exit 80 at the U.S. 45 Bypass has been canceled due to weather.

From 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, crews will shift traffic up and over the I-40 east and westbound ramps at Exit 80 at the U.S. 45 Bypass as well as close and detour U.S. 45 Bypass south and northbound at the interchange, according to a TDOT release.
