One of the blogs I follow, "Creme de Memph" has assorted articles on the development of Memphis.

The second part in a series looking at Mud Island was just released.  It goes into a little bit of detail describing the never-realized plans for a freeway connecting the ghost ramps at the end of the Hernando Desoto Bridge to the TN 300 spur, a Riverside Expressway (instead of Riverside Drive), and a couple of very early versions of a map I once had stuck to my bedroom wall illustrating the long-range plans of the Memphis/Shelby County freeway system:  https://cremedememph.blogspot.com/2018/06/mud-island-history-2.html
