Are there enough signs at the 25th Street construction site?

As the construction site on 25th Street near Interstate 94 in Fargo changes, so do the signs telling you where to go. 

Local authorities say they are hearing from drivers confused about signs near the busy construction site. 

"It's just hectic out here," says Donald Pate of Fargo.

Some are saying there are too many signs while others are saying there aren't enough.

"You know, we could add another sign, but the more stuff we add, the more distractions we add to look and at you're not paying attention to the road or the car ahead of you," says North Dakota Department of Transportation Assistant District Engineer Kevin Gorder.

The DOT says when you're driving through a construction zone, limit distractions like the radio or your cell phone.

"Just really focus on driving. I think that's going to help things a lot to get us through these work zones safely," Gorder says.

He says there isn't much they can do. There are national guidelines for construction zones and they have to follow them.

"You might see some little, minor modifications, but we're all basing it off of the same book as we start laying our traffic control out," says Gorder.

He says the cross over on the south side of the 25th Street bridge has created some confusion, but that should get better in the next few weeks. Some residents, however, are simply ready for it to be  done.

 "I can tolerate it. There's not really much else you can do if you need to get to this exit," says Pate.

If you do find yourself confused and going the wrong direction, Gorder says to find the nearest, safest place to turn around.
