WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A sign in the middle of the Interstate 91 in Wethersfield is causing a traffic jam Tuesday afternoon, police said.

A tractor-trailer slammed into an overhead sign on the southbound side of I-91 near Exit 26 just before 12:30 p.m.

The incident has created a traffic backup and the two center lanes have been closed in the area.

It is unclear when the debris will be cleaned up, however crews from the Connecticut Department of Transportation were called to the scene.

The sign was "completely destroyed," according to DOT officials.
