— Starting Monday, Durham drivers will have to take a couple of detours for the next few weeks.

The state Department of Transportation is temporarily closing ramps at the Interstate 85/Guess Road interchange.

The I-85 southbound off-ramp and northbound on-ramp will both be blocked. Detours will be clearly marked.

The closures are necessary as part of the I-85 widening project.
