COLQUITT, Ga. — A sign that misspelled the name of a Miller County city has been replaced after someone shared a post about the error on social media.

The original sign for Colquitt, Ga. was damaged during Hurricane Michael, according to Georgia Department of Transportation.

In their Facebook. GDOT thanked both District Sign Manager Cedric Robinson and Highway Maintenance Foreman Tim Walker for “making sure Colquitt is properly represented.”
