Overpass work near Exits 11 and 21 finishes up at noon

Interstate 5's Exit 21 in Talent and Exit 11 in Ashland reopen at noon today.

Contractor J.W. Fowler of Dallas completed the resurfacing of two overpasses more than a week ahead of schedule.

The $350,000 Oregon Department of Transportation project began in mid-September and closed the northbound ramp at Exit 11, requiring drivers to detour to Exit 14.

In Talent, the on- and off-ramps at Exit 21 remained open, but drivers had to detour along Suncrest Road in Talent to get to them or to use Phoenix or Ashland exit ramps.
