We have avoided I 40 to Memphis for a while now because of the construction but its now completed. I know there are some others in AR using this route & wondered if anyone from Little Rock could comment on how you liked it. Was your drive time about the same as going the typical route (Vicksburg, Jackson, Hattiesburg, etc?? Any issues with getting to Memphis? Traffic is usually so bad on I 40 b/c of the trucks & we never get to Memphis as fast as we'd like.
