Last Friday afternoon heading west into Memphis, took US 61 south to rte. 49, crossed the river on 49. Only issues I had were the multitude of stoplights on 61, heading out of Memphis. Traffic reports on the radio said the back-ups at the 55 bridge in both directions were loooong, but it was Friday afternoon.

The secret passage NB is near Robinsonville. Watch for the sign for I-69 and go right. I-69 cuts directly over to I-55 The road is MS-713.

I amaze Anne:

Thank you. But it's because I live here in Memphis. At Swift I often pulled paper rolls from southern MS north. I-69 was indispensable.

Thanks for that, Errol. I took it this morning. One stop sign, one traffic light, and one set of railroad tracks I had to stop for; much smoother than following 61 all the way into Memphis.

BTW, at approx. 8:45 AM this morning, there were absolutely no delays westbound across the I-55 bridge; the backup eastbound, however, was miles long and the complaints on the radio longer.
