Phoenix's Interstate 5 southbound on-ramp will be closed Monday through Friday next week for the construction of a new, temporary ramp. During the closure, motorists who want to drive south on I-5 will need to take Highway 99 to Talent. Detours for commercial truck traffic, particularly from the Petro truck stop, will be longer, sending them north on Interstate 5 to Exit 27 to turn around and head south. The construction of temporary ramps is the next phase in the $72 million Fern Valley interchange project. A temporary southbound off-ramp is set for construction the following week, officials said.
