ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -- There’s a traffic alert for drivers who go through Rocky Hill.

A bridge replacement project will close Elm Street starting Monday night, likely shutting it down through the summer.

The closure was supposed to begin last week, but it was postponed due to the Travelers Championship.

The Dept. of Transportation is removing and replacing two bridges on Elm Street.

Those bridges take traffic over I-91.

Starting Monday, Elm Street will be closed for a little less than two months.

There will be detours set up to help drivers get around.

The project will also involve shutting down I-91 overnight on two Sundays in the middle of July.
