LOS ANGELES (AP) - Twenty decorative signs meant to distinguish Gaffey Street in the San Pedro area of Los Angeles were put up along the port district’s main entryway before anyone noticed each has an extra E in the word street.

Computer programmer Michael Foti pointed out the Gaffey Street gaffe Tuesday night in an Instagram post.

Foti tells the Daily Breeze newspaper (https://bit.ly/2oa5Y2n ) he thought there was a typo when the signs were placed on poles last week and he finally stopped to get a better look.

Sure enough, the circular signs say “GAFFEY STREEET” on both sides.

Foti says it’s hard to see the error because the word is curved.

The signs were done by a design firm selected by a committee overseeing local improvements. The signs will be corrected and replaced.
