If olny

If olny the signs could broadcast a signal that would make a GPS unit scream like a dying cyberman.

Bad

That's really bad. If it were something like a misplaced apostrophe then I might have more sympathy, but this just smacks of "spelling check is not my job". (Or maybe "splleing check" is more appropriate.)

Is the name of the engineer who signed off on that sign a public record?

When I was in junior high

When I was in junior high school, I had an older teacher who would say to the students who messed around in his class, "Keep screwing around, they always need people to paint lines on the road". I guess they hire the same individuals to spell highway signs.

Ironically, the guy/girls

Ironically, the guy/girls "who paint lines on the road probably have more secure jobs and pay/benefits that are better, or at least competitive with some of the best students your teacher had in his class.

To quote Judge Smails..."The world needs ditch diggers too."

Several years ago, one of the green interstate-type signs above route 3 on the way to Plymouth read Pilmoth Plantation instead of Plimoth Plantation.

donated to residents of Olneyville (Providence). I bet a lot of misspelled signs could go there to live.
