With the road construction we’ve had to put up with all summer and into the fall most of us would be so thrilled to hear it’s finished we probably wouldn’t take offence to a sign like this, but some people did.
Photos of an electronic traffic sign that read “We done bitches” were shared on social media. The sign in Edmonton was seen near a road that had been under construction for some time. Clearly the workers were thrilled the road would be opening but some were upset with the way it was celebrated, calling the sign vulgar.
Transportation ministry spokesperson Aileen Machell said in a statement; “Two thousand people worked very hard to bring this project to completion, and there’s obviously a lot of pride in that work. It seems someone changed the sign as part of the celebrations, however, the wording is not the kind we would use and we had it changed immediately.”
No word on who programmed the sign.
