SAN PEDRO ( — About 20 street signs in San Pedro will have to be replaced after the word “street” was misspelled.

The signs with an extra “e” went up on Gaffey Street about a week ago, but it took a driver sharing an image of the signs on social media to get them fixed.

Crews have begun taking down the signs, which were part of a beautification project by a local neighborhood group. The signs will be fixed and reinstalled at no cost by the designer.

  1. This is a story on a typo. Then you say Beatification process! Unless that sign is destined for sainthood, I think you mean BEAUTIFICATION!

  2. How many people would’ve seen this sign between design, review, approval, production and installation? And EVERYONE missed it? Doesn’t say much about our educational system…or basic observational skills!
