Whoops! Typo in Columbus highway sign directs drivers to ‘Cinicinnati’

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A road sign along I-71 in Columbus has a typo that’s getting some attention.  

At the 17th Avenue ramp to I-71, the road sign directing drivers misspells Cincinnati by adding an extra “i” between the first “n” and second “c.”

The sign reads “Cinicinnati.”

A spokesperson with the Ohio Department of Transportation says the error in the sign was first noticed July 30, and it takes about six to eight weeks for a new sign to be shipped. 

The spokesperson also said that the contractor will be replacing the sign at no cost to the taxpayers.
