Highway sign for Business Highway 51 in Rothschild, Schofield misspells every word but ‘exit,’ Wisconsin Department of Transportation points to company named Decker
Wausau Daily Herald
A sign pointing southbound travelers onto Business Highway 51 in Rothschild and Schofield bears an incorrect spelling for every word except “exit.”
David Vieth, director of the bureau of highway operations for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, said the mistake was made by Decker Supply Company of Madison, which printed the sign.
The sign for exit 185 on southbound Highway 51 reads “Buisness 51 Rothschield Schofeild.”
“How do I politely say it shows some incompetence on someone’s part?” said Rothschild Village President Neal Torney.
