HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - Someone tampered with a construction sign in Houston.

They turned the flashing traffic information into an anti-Trump message.

The sign read in part "impeach Trump." The rest of it, though is too obscene to show.

The sign was supposed to warn drivers of a lane closure.

Houston's Department of Public Works said the hacked sign was not put in place by the city or Texas Department of Transportation.

They also said the lane closure that the sign was alerting drivers to was unauthorized.

As for the company that owns the sign, it said the boxes on them are typically locked and password protected from hackers.

Just so you know, it is illegal to hack into a sign.
