Oops — again.

Another road sign in Gwinnett County, Ga., with a typographical error has been spotted — this one by yours truly’s camera.

A road sign in Suwanee (in Gwinnett County and metro Atlanta) says “Scale Rd”, but it actually should read “Scales”. This sign is at the intersection with McGinnis Ferry Road.

This intersection is monitored by Gwinnett County transportation officials, who installed the sign and traffic signals in 2013.

“Our Transportation Department has been notified and will fix the problem,” Gwinnett County spokesperson Joe Sorenson said in an e-mail to me Thursday (Aug. 14).

Only recently, a road sign on nearby Highway 316 had “Gwinnett” misspelled. (The sign has been replaced.)

Also, news reports recently focused on “Aquairium” on a freeway sign in downtown Atlanta.

  1. Wonder what the cost of replacing it will be.

  2. Steve Burns says:

    Thanks for the comment. I’ll try to check.

  3. It looks like all the transportation agencies across the states would save themselves a lot of headache if they combined some funds to hire a statewide copy editor.
