ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

Construction in Rocky Hill is starting to cause some confusion for drivers.

It’s all happening on West and Main streets in Rocky Hill, and one Citgo gas station has been busier than usual, as drivers have no choice but to turn around there and go back out the other way.

Connecticut Department of Transportation crews are replacing the Hog Brook Bridge on Main Street, also known as Route 99, near West Street.

While there are “Road Closed” signs, drivers said there needs to be more on local roads to warn them about the construction ahead.

“There should be additional signs, there really should be because you don't know, someone not familiar with the area and don't know where you are going and on these back roads, it's confusing to a person out of town,” said Lynn Taylor, of Marlborough.

Eyewitness News learned that there is an issue when it comes to signs. Towns have to put signage on local roads and state roads are covered by the Department of Transportation.

The Department of Transportation said all of the signage that is supposed to be there is there.

They have to be careful where they put the signs because they don’t want too much traffic on local roads.

They are ahead of schedule, and the road should be back open on Thursday.
