JACKSONVILLE - The Florida Department of Transportation had some explaining to do when Florida was misspelled on an Interstate 95 exit sign in Jacksonville.

First Coast News (http://fcnews.tv/162VpwY ) reports the signs being installed along I-95 were produced by a sign manufacturer in Arkansas.

The mistake was spotted on a sign set to go up at the J. Turner Boulevard exit. Florida was misspelled twice on one sign. It says University of North "Flordia" and "Flordia" State College South Campus.

A spokesman for the sign company told First Coast News it will fix the mistakes for free.
