On eastbound 94 they replaced the Livernois sign with a "LiverNIOS" sign. We weren't able to get a picture of it, but hopefully someone will be able to post a picture of it.

Okay, good!...I'm glad im not the only one who saw that!

Man, you'd think they'd really REALLY double check those things for spelling. I wonder if that happens often.

If you get onto I-94 Eastbound from Ford Road after Wyoming or the Michigan Ave. on ramp it's only about 40-80 yards away on the next 1-2 overpasses.

Maybe the city will post the sign on e-Bay after they take it down (haha!)

The sign at Woodward and Antoinette used to say "Antionette," but I'm pretty sure they corrected it when they switched to the new design.

Sadly it happens often, and the eventual misspelling sometimes become more or less set in stone... For example: I grew up in a small Washtenaw village on a road named Schleweis. When the county came through updating the signs from the old black lettering on white background to yellow lettering on blue, they posted new signs that read "Schleeweis." Wrongo! When we called (my family) to point out the error, we got the "We'll look into it..." Which of course, is otherwise known as the bureaucratic run around. Skip a few years later, and I noticed that local area maps are being printed with the updated, though incorrect spelling. I called one of them (map co.'s) to point out the continuing errors. They said: "We'll look into it..." To my surprise, this wasn't the "brush-off" as they called me back a few days later, saying more or less, "Sorry, but that spelling is what your county is giving us..." So now short of wading through more red-tinted paperwork, and girding myself for bureaucratic warfare, the new spelling stands. I remember being asked (by the map people) if not, perhaps I could be in error... Whereas I informed them, that it wasn't likely as I was living at the old SCHLEWEIS family homestead (1870's) at the time, and saw various family members names burned into the barn wall, and dated as well, from Johann (signed 1882) to Peter (1920-something)and all spelled with one less "E"-- I hope the spirits of these hardy German pioneers aren't spinning about their graves.......

When I was young I lived on a street called "Edwood". We were on the corner and had the street sign in our yard. It read "Elwood". I always thought it was fantastic. Elwood Blues.

Mrs. Murphy: Help you two?
Elwood: Do you have any white bread ma'am?
Mrs. Murphy: Yeah.
Elwood: I'll have some toasted white bread please.
Mrs. Murphy: You want butter or jam on that, honey?
Elwood: No ma'am, dry.

For a few days in 1992 up in Lansing, MDOT had I-69 going to Detroit. This large overhead sign was on US-127 southbound.

Oh, and if I might gripe: I'll pay good money for someone to take a sawzall to the final "S" on the "CONNORS CREEK PUMPING STATION" A little literacy goes a long way. But then, I suppose it fits: people live near Connors Creek, and go to work at Fords...

Francis Livernois Street named in 1872.The street runs the entire length of Detroit, a true arterial.

He thought it was jim dandy that his entire street would be dedicated to used car lots.
At one point, he asked that the name be changed to Beater Blvd.

The Northland Roller Rink on 8-Mile (or as we like to call it, the "Stab n' Skate") has a huge banner accross the front of it that in very big letters says WE DO GREAT BIRTHDAY PARTY!

The simple fact that it's SO BIG and nobody noticed/cared when they put it up is what cracks me up.

The Ferndale Quick-Lube's main sign read
"Frendale Quick-Lube" for several years.

Ask a Cadillac dealer how often the customer writes a check to the dealer and spells it "Caddilac". Answer: every day. The correct spelling is on the side/back/inside of the car they've been driving every day for years.

There's a collision shop on John R between 6 and 7 Mile roads with a sign out front: "Jhon R Auto Body."

There's a sports clothing shop on Woodward in Highland Park with a sign, "Strickly Sportswear," on the front (yet on the side, it says "Strictly Sportswear").

There was a liquor store on Harper that proclaimed, "Detroit's Finness Cognac." "Finness" was later painted over to read "Finest."

Ntrance, don't be too quick to criticize. The stream for decades was spelled on maps as Connor's Creek. At the time the pumping station was built, Connors Creek was the norm. Somewhere along the way the apostrophe was dropped and eventually the spelling changed to Conners Creek, and the adjacent street spelled as either Connors or Conners. Finally, the the extra S was dropped from the street name. If the USGS is to be used as the authoritative source, then it's still Conners Creek.

A very common mistake is CAPITOL HIGHWAY VS. CAPITAL HIGHWAY. jjaba has lived in two places where these are all twisted. The city can name it one way, and as you roll down the street, everybody spells it their own way.

When you see it on business signs wrong or on coupons for those businesses, it drives jjaba plum nuts.

Speaking of Gratiot North of 8 mile take a look at this next time your heading north on Gratiot. This is the effects of a terrible sign ordinance. At 10 mile it becomes Roseville. Look at the difference in UGLY cluttered signs when compared to Eastpointe. Gratiot in Eastpointe or er uh East Detroit....no i mean Halfway.....or Erin Twp.....anyways Gratiot looks much nicer in that city than Roseville and it is very noticable when you pass 10 Mile Rd.

Fareastsider, I've noticed that for some time too. Eastpointe's commercial area looks well kept and clutter-free when compared to Roseville. The difference is dramatic when you cross 10 Mile.

From what I've seen, Eastpointe's residential areas, including streets and sidewalks, are better maintained (and cleaner) than in Roseville, too.

manfield auto parts on warren ave had 2 different signs on their building for years...one said "Mansfield" and the other said "Manfield" They changed the one with the "s" eventually though. Its funny why the would spell it with out the "s", though because "Mansfield" St. is just a few blocks away.

We should rename the SMART bus system, if they don't come to Livonia.

Come BACK !!! Come BACK !!! Come BACK !!!

We need good bus service as Livonia Transit is failing to meet the needs of community transit. Yes, we will help the SMART transit officials fight for more state money for the crippled.

So, please come back soon.

jjaba's fav. story is motel signs.
Many older motels are owned by Indians named Patel. jjaba got a sign fixed in 4 hours, a sign out of repair for yrs.

So jjaba sees a motel sign with the "T" unlit.
In Hebrew, a moel (or mohel) is the rabbi who does circumcisions.

So if you sign is 15 ft. tall, and reads MO EL, every Jew on the Interstate is laughing to the toilet.
