Misdirected Directions

Posted: Updated:

Well, well now.

Just take a look at this.

Last week our cameras caught these signs on I-220 southbound just before I-20.

They tell motorists that to go to Vicksburg just take 49 West and to get to Hattiesburg just take I-20 South.

Of course, for those of us who live here, we know that 49 South goes to Hattiesburg and I-20 West takes you to Vicksburg.

An MDOT contractor from Little Rock was responsible for doing this.

The signs have since been taken down.

And MDOT does admit their oversight spotting this embarrassing goof up fell a bit short.

On the other hand, maybe those out of state drivers saw more of our state than they intended.

And in the process, spent more of their money here trying to figure out where they needed to go.

Welcome to Mississippi!

That's my Point of View.
