State Fixes Error on Drexel Interchange Signs

New signs were put up Tuesday night after an embarrassing misspelling.

Drivers should now officially "yield" on left turns from Drexel Avenue onto I-94.

Signs — on both sides of the Drexel Avenue bridge — for drivers about to get on the interstate were misspelled, with yield spelled "yeild."

They were put up just last week shortly before the ramps opened on the new Drexel Interchange.

Patch posted a photo of the misspelled signs on its Facebook page and Twitter feed Monday, and they drew immediate ridicule.

The state had new signs up by about 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The Drexel Interchange fully opened last Friday. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the interchange and expanded Drexel Avenue was held Nov. 20.

A few years ago I noticed our street signs were replaced and one of them read, "2th Ave." A couple days later the sign was replaced, but I couldn't help but wonder who messed that up! Tooth Avenue!

When you take the Plankinton Ave exit there is a sign that says "Do no crossover to I-794" - it drives me crazy that they used the noun, crossover instead of the verb, cross over.

I got bumped out my 4th grade spelling B on that word. Spelled it 'yeild'.
