CORNELIUS, North Carolina — Crews have fixed a misspelling on an Interstate 77 exit near Charlotte that caused a lot of laughter on social media.

Workers painted "NOLY" on a bridge at Exit 28 on I-77 near Cornelius instead of "ONLY"

The North Carolina Department of Transportation says crews had been working for 28 hours straight to get the bridge open last weekend and were rushing to finish before it rained. The DOT says the mistake was noticed immediately, but it took two days before the weather cooperated so workers could correct it.

Photos of the mistake were quickly sent around on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.
