Interstate 55 assumes the southbound (from Mississippi) and westbound (from the Mississippi River and Arkansas) routes of this interchange, while Interstate 240, formerly Interstate 255, consists of the northbound and eastbound. Due to the irregular exchange of route markers, expressway exits have been extensively modified to handle the excess amount of traffic (compared to driving from east-to-west or north-to-south).
