The Department of Transportation was a letter short and an hour late Wednesday in noticing a sign along Highway 316 pointing to “Georgia Gwinett College.” (Spoiler alert: an “n” is missing in Gwinett.)
Observant motorists noticed the mistake before any DOT or college officials picked up on it.
The DOT, which just spent $52.7 million on the new Collins Hill Bridge on Highway 316, said the misspelling was a human error, 11Alive reports.
Natalie Dale, a spokeswoman for the DOT, said that the sign was a project done by a separate contractor.
“Apparently, whoever [the contractor] used as the manufacturer for their signs had a misspelling in one of their signs,” Dale said.
The sign will be taken down and fixed or replaced with a correct sign at no extra charge, Dale said.
Merri Brantley, a spokeswoman with the school, said GGC was not involved in making the sign.
“We had nothing to do with that,” she said. “That’s all DOT.”
