An exit sign on a Delaware highway was replaced after drivers pointed out on social media that it misspelled the name of the state. Numerous posts appeared on social media this week when the Delaware Avenue exit sign on northbound Interstate 95 in Wilmington was installed and travelers quickly noticed it was spelled “Delware Ave.” The Delaware Department of Transportation said a subcontractor had to make the sign in a hurry because the permanent replacement wasn’t expected to arrive in time for the exit’s reopening this week. They joked in a Facebook post that that typo had been a “test” to see if drivers were paying attention.
