Memphis International Airport Update:

  • The airport remains closed to passenger arrivals and departures tonight.
  • We have confirmed that MEM will not open until at least noon tomorrow, although the opening time could be later. This is no set opening time at this point, as many details are still not confirmed. The airport is working on multiple short-term options that would allow for the opening of temporary restrooms and the resumption of passenger flight operations.
  • Cargo carriers operate out of different facilities and are not impacted by the passenger terminal issue.
  • Passengers are advised to continue checking with their airlines to stay up to date on scheduling changes. Each airline handles its own scheduling adjustments.
  • MEM conducted a virtual meeting with airlines and other tenants this afternoon in order to share details of our efforts to re-open.
  • We do not have an estimated completion time from Memphis Light, Gas and Water on the water system repairs, although they assure us that they continue to work diligently to restore pressure.
  • MEM will issue an additional status update for Saturday no later than 7 am in the morning.
  • Today’s previous updates can be found here.

4:00 p.m.: 

MATA Update:

Effective tomorrow, February 20, 2021, the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) plans to only offer the following service:

1. Fixed-Route bus service will run between 5:15 a.m. and 6:45 p.m., but only on Routes 1, 11, 28, 32, 39, 42, 50 and 57. These routes were selected based on current road conditions.

2. MATAplus will operate between 5 a.m. and 6:45 p.m., but only for life sustaining trips (includes trips for dialysis) for customers who have reservations.

3. The William Hudson, Airways and American Way Transit Centers will remain open during service times only between 5:15 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. (Water fountains are not accessible at this time due to the current precautionary boil water advisory.)

Please note that the Main Street, Riverfront and Madison Trolley lines will not operate.

Please continue to pay attention to information being shared via Omnilert, on the City of Memphis Nextdoor platform, on MATA Facebook and Twitter pages, and in the Service Alerts section of matatransit.com. Customers can also call the MATA Call Center at 901.274.MATA (6282). It is open today until 6 p.m. and opens tomorrow at 7:30 a.m.

MATA service will continue to be monitored throughout the day tomorrow based on inclement weather reports and road conditions. Another update will be shared tomorrow regarding service for Sunday, February 21, 2021.

---------------------------------------------------------

12:10 p.m.: 

Memphis International Airport Update 

  • Original announcement can be found here
  • The airport remains closed at this time to passenger arrivals and departures. Cargo is not impacted by the water pressure issue at the passenger terminal, because the cargo companies utilize their own facilities.
  • We do not expect that MLGW will be able to repair the water service today, but they have assured us that they are continuing to work to restore water pressure. MEM also continues to explore various short-term options that would allow for the opening of restrooms and the passenger terminal flight operations.
  • Low water pressure is a significant problem for the airport because it prohibits the provision of adequate bathroom operations. The past couple of days, MEM experienced fluctuating water pressure from MLGW, but overnight it dropped below 20 PSI, which is too low to sustain bathroom operations and other functions. For a public facility that literally serves thousands of people a day, it is critical for the airport to have operable restrooms. Water pressure is also needed for boiler operations, cleaning and maintenance, and service for restaurants and other tenants.
  • During our winter operations, our runways remained open and both passenger and cargo flights continued to arrive and depart. During winter weather events, even if an airport is open, an airline may still opt to cancel flights based on their schedule and networking plan. Essentially, the airport provides its status, and the airlines adjust their schedules accordingly. The airport does not dictate or control individual airline schedules and is not a part of the ticketing process between the airline and passenger.
  • After the decision to close the airport today, MEM notified the airlines and at that point the airlines determined how and when to adjust their schedules. For this reason, we ask passengers to continue to check with their airlines throughout the day.
  • We understand that it has been a frustrating week for passenger travel and apologize to our passengers for this inconvenience, but we cannot operate the airport without a safe and dependable water supply and functioning restrooms. The resolution of this water pressure situation is dependent upon repairs made by MLGW to its system. We will update the airlines and the public as soon as we have more clarity on reopening.

Despite the terminal closure, rental car companies are open:

  • Alamo – counter open till 7pm
  • Avis – counter open till 11pm
  • Budget – counter open till 7pm
  • Dollar – counter open till 10pm
  • Enterprise – counter open till 7pm
  • Hertz – counter open till 11pm
  • National – counter open till 7pm
  • Payless – counter open till 11pm
  • Thrifty – counter open till 10pm

All rental car companies have key drop boxes for 24-hour vehicle returns.

9:30 a.m.: 

TDOT update: 

After a grueling week of winter weather, Tennessee Department of Transportation crews have been able to clear most lanes on state-owned roadways in west Tennessee.

Drivers should contact their local city or county to check the condition of locally owned/neighborhood roads.

From the evening of Sunday, February 14 through the morning on Friday, February 19, TDOT has used approximately 18,000 tons of salt and logged over 99,000 miles clearing and treating roadways across 21 counties in west Tennessee.

While crews are continuing to treat any remaining snow/issues, TDOT is also preparing for pothole response. Potholes form when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands, and then thaws, leaving a void that eventually caves in under vehicle traffic.

Crews will have to use a cold mix to make temporary repairs until asphalt plants open regularly in the spring. More information on potholes is available here Potholes (tn.gov), or drivers can report potholes with TDOT’s online maintenance request form TDOT Maintenance Request (tn.gov).

For the latest on road conditions, check TDOT SmartWay before you go: https://smartway.tn.gov.

Wednesday, February 17

5:45 p.m.: 

Due to the continuing worsening inclement weather conditions, the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) is terminating its service immediately. Service was expected to end at 6:45 p.m. but it is ending now.

Information about the service schedule for Thursday, February 18, 2021 was shared earlier this afternoon. However, information will continue to be shared via Omnilert messages (a real-time service notification tool that MATA provides to customers who sign up to receive text, voice and email alerts), information on the City of Memphis Nextdoor platform, on the MATA Facebook and Twitter pages, and matatransit.com for any new updates. Customers can also call the MATA Call Center at 901.274.MATA (6282) until 6 p.m. today. The Call Center will reopen at 6 a.m. tomorrow.

---------------------------------------------

5:40 p.m.: 

Entergy Mississippi is asking all customers to decrease their electrical usage from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., due to direction from reliability coordinator Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) regarding critical power shortages.

There is the potential for mandatory forced outages in the next few hours if the demand does not decrease, and customers across the state should be prepared to have controlled outages for what we hope will be no more than 60 minutes per customer until the power demand is reduced. Limiting the use of large appliances and lowering the thermostat on heating units now can greatly impact the number and length of forced outages.

Mandatory forced outages will decrease the likelihood of widespread outages and long-term damages to the bulk electric system. Circuits serving emergency facilities or where loss of service presents significant risk to public safety and health will be high priority to maintain power.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Please know Entergy Mississippi will work to restore power as quickly as we can safely do so. Visit www.entergynewsroom.com/storm-center/ for more information.

Sanitation Collection Delayed by One Week in Collierville 

The Town of Collierville will delay household and commercial sanitation collection for one week. Collierville Public Services will collect garbage and recycling on your regularly schedule pick-up date starting Monday, February 22, 2021.

“To assist our customers, we will have our Transfer Station open and will be extending its hours this Saturday,” said John Fox, Town Public Works Manager. This Saturday, February 20th, from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Collierville residents can dispose of excess waste at the Town’s Transfer Station, 450 East South Street.

The decision to delay sanitation collection was carefully considered by Town officials to provide reliable service to residents without risking the safety of truck operators.

“We aren’t seeing temperatures rise above freezing until Saturday,” said Fox. “Waiting a week to start collection will allow us to safely serve the community and get back to our regular schedule.”

To use the Town’s Transfer Station, bring any unwanted garbage to the site and drop the bags into the hopper. There will be Public Services staff on-site to help assist residents. If you have questions about sanitation collection, find updates on collierville.com or call Collierville Public Services at 901-457-2800.

Update from Mississippi Department of Transportation: 

Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) crews continue to clear ice and snow from highways in north Mississippi in preparation for another round of snow this week.

Today, crews are plowing highways throughout the area to remove ice left by freezing rain and sleet Sunday and Monday. Crews are focusing on interstates and four-lane routes followed by two-lane routes. In most areas, sunshine is helping break up the ice, and wind will help dry out the roadways. South of Tupelo, along U.S. Highway 45 and U.S. Highway 82, snow clouds are lingering.

Current weather reports from the National Weather Service show another round of winter precipitation moving through Wednesday and Thursday.

MDOT crews will be monitoring highways and placing salt and slag on roadways to help lessen ice formation and increase traction. However, as temperatures drop down into the teens and single digits, salt becomes less effective and roadways could freeze.

Motorists are encouraged to limit travel if possible. If emergency or essential travel is required, motorists should drive to the conditions and slow down. During winter weather conditions, MDOT offers these safe driving tips:

  • Remember, ice will form on bridges and overpasses quicker than the road.
  • Slow down; should winter weather conditions become present, black ice can form.
  • Allow more space between the vehicles around you.
  • Brake early and gently to avoid skidding, and never slam on the brakes.
  • Avoid distractions, such as talking or texting on a cell phone.
  • Stay alert.

“MDOT will be monitoring the weather so the appropriate response efforts can be activated,” said Melinda McGrath, P.E., MDOT Executive Director. “The best thing you can do to stay safe is pay attention to local weather forecasts and advisories, and alerts from the Mississippi Highway Patrol and local law enforcement. Everyone should stay off the roads if they become unsafe for travel due to winter weather conditions.”
