Thanks for clearing that up.

You can also see some of the wonkiness east of the eastern I-40/I-240 interchange (e.g. https://www.google.com/maps/@35.162466,-89.8684269,3a,20.5y,265.14h,93.72t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sGXMt43Qv4TBU-VS7irruyg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192).   I believe something similar was done for I-65 when it was realigned around Nashville.

I wish Connecticut would consider doing something similar when it gets around to changing I-95 from sequential to mile-based numbering.

All they did for I-65 when it was rerouted around to the west portion of the Nashville Downtown Loop was bury any potential corrections in the I-40 duplex.  The exit numbers along that stretch are, and have always been, I-40 exit numbers.  Every mile marker and exit number north of the current southern/eastern I-24 split remained the same, and former I-265 mileage was tacked onto I-65 decreasing from that interchange (thus turning former I-265 Exit 1 into I-65 Exit 85).  And the former I-65 mileage on the east loop that found itself along I-24 only was renumbered with I-24 mileage and exit numbering, with no issues since I-24 never moved.

You do have to admit, looking at the map that I-65's change from one way around downtown Nashville to the other could be measured almost more by feet than miles.  I-265's old route with downtown I-40 is most likely very, very slightly longer.

Ford just announced Blue Oval City in Stanton, TN.

https://www.thedrive.com/tech/42541/fords-biggest-investment-ever-is-11-4-billion-for-ev-battery-plants-in-the-south

It will be about a hour NE of Memphis and 20 minutes from the planned route of I-69 at Covington.

It will make both EV's and batteries in a JV with SK and will cover 6 square miles.

It will cost Ford about $11.4 Billion to construct this "city".

SK will also build a battery plant near Glendale, KY, but that on will be off of I-65.

Look for a large amount of traffic on I-40/I-65 and US51/I-69/Wendell Ford if this new "city' comes to be.

The town of Stanton, TN is just a couple or miles North of I-40. It's likely Blue Oval City will be built closer to I-40, if not right adjacent to it.

The exit for TN-222 was recently upgraded and the route going North of I-40 was turned into a 4-lane divided highway. In Google Earth there is a fairly big plot of land labeled "Memphis Regional Megasite."
