Road construction work always causes headaches.

Just ask the people who live in the Westmoreland neighborhood along Versailles Road.

That road is being resurfaced right now, between New Circle Road and the Blue Grass Parkway.

People in the Westmoreland neighborhood say the work is causing confusion, for people pulling onto Versailles Road.

Some drivers say right now, it's not always clear where Versailles Road starts.

Some people are accidentally pulling onto Versailles without realizing they're doing so because there are no markers or lights telling them where to stop.

Neighborhood leaders have talked to the state about this, and the state is promising action to ease the problem.
