Here's something you don't see everyday in Florida.

Several road signs are sidelined on Interstate -95 due to spelling errors.

Along I-95, drivers may notice massive road signs sitting on the side of the interstate. They are replacement signs that have bigger letters to be visible to seniors, and stronger supports to withstand high winds.

The change of signs is costing taxpayers 3.6 million dollars.

One sign in particular though is turning heads on I-95.

At first, or even second glance you might not catch this glaring goof. "Florida" spelled " F-L-O-R-D-I-A."

Turns out, the Florida Department Of Transportation caught it too.

FDOT spokesman Mike Goldman says the sign was made by an out-of-state contractor.

Signs are delivered to each site. Project managers do inspections on site, checking everything from materials to – yes, even the spelling.

The contractor, not taxpayers is picking up the tab for correcting this error.
