Road construction spelling error on Mississippi highway

Posted: Updated:
RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

A mistake on a recent Mississippi Department of Transportation road project is catching the attention of lots of motorists.

Several viewers called WAFB's sister station in Mississippi, WLBT, pointing out the ‘N' being backwards on the only signs painted on the ground at the bypass construction on Airport Road.

MDOT officials say a contractor had the template backwards when the signs were sprayed.

The signs are on the four lane highway, just north of Highway 80, which runs all the way to Lakeland Drive.

MDOT says the mistake will be corrected as soon as the asphalt dries.
