BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A Hampden resident caught a typo on I-95 that has gone unnoticed for months.
The Baltimore Sun said Chris Boyle was driving on Interstate 95 one morning last week when he noticed a sign for the Patapsco River was misspelled. Instead, it said “Patapasco River.”
Boyle emailed the State Highway Administration and added that he didn’t know how long the sign had been misspelled.
The State Highway Administration removed the sign Thursday after being contacted for comment by The Baltimore Sun.
“SHA would like to thank the motorist for making us aware of the misspelling,” spokesman Charlie Gischlar wrote in an email.
Contractor P. Flanigan & Sons Inc. manufactured and installed the sign last summer on I-95 between the Howard County line and U.S. Route 1 in Baltimore County, Gischlar said.
