State Misspells Sign Over Louisville Expressway

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky transportation officials are finding out what's exactly in a name.

A sign for the Gene Snyder Expressway contained two letters transposed. The errant sign briefly renamed the road the "Gene Synder Expressway."

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokeswoman Andrea Clifford told WAVE-TV in Louisville the formal name in the title isn't something spell-check is going to catch if it is wrong.

Clifford says KYTC sends plan documents to an outside company to make the signs and a state employee simply typed the name wrong.

Clifford says the misspelling will soon take an exit of its own.

KYTC will send an employee to fix the signs in the next few days, switching the Y and the N, with minimal impact on traffic.
