CUERO, Texas – Take a look at the Twitter photo of the road sign below. Do you notice anything... off or misspelled?

Twitter user James Keith tweeted Thursday to the Texas Department of Transportation about the misspelled road sign, which is located on a bridge in Cuero, Texas.

For reference, the sign should read, “Guadalupe River,” instead of “Gaudalupe River.”

TxDOT had quite the response for James in regards to the sign’s misspelling.
