So everyone was very excited when an always jammed stretch of westbound I-66 expanded to a third lane the other day. So excited that some people slapped up a new sign and didn’t run it by the proofreaders. Do they have spell-check for street signs?

Scott Brodbeck at had this first, as always. But he didn’t have it night. Ooooh.
