Edmonton Road Sign Heralds End Of Construction With 'We Done Bitches'

Posted: Updated:

It was the best of signs, it was the worst of signs, depending on how you look at it.

After Edmonton officially unveiled the long-awaited northeast leg of Anthony Henday Drive on Saturday, someone touring the new road noticed a construction sign with quite the proclamation.

"NEW NORTH A. HENDAY NOW OPEN," it said, according to a video uploaded by Shauna Babysh-Stelmaschuk.


Stelmaschuk told CBC News she found the sign to be hilarious and took it as "good humour."

The sign was a hit on social media, too.

Not everyone was a fan, though. Alberta's Transportation Ministry told Global News that although crews were proud of the roadwork's completion, the sign's language didn't exactly follow protocol.

“It seems someone changed the sign as part of the celebrations, however, the wording is not the kind we would use and we had it changed immediately," the ministry said.

Construction on the last leg of Anthony Henday Drive began in 2012. The project cost $4 billion, according to the Edmonton Journal.
