Construction sign woos Wis. motorists
Friday, May 28, 2010
STEVENS POINT, Wis. -- A digital construction sign along a central Wisconsin interstate has been flashing a rock-inspired passionate message to passing motorists.
The sign near Stevens Point spelled out "Danger Danger," "High Voltage," "When We Touch, "When We Kiss," to rush-hour drivers Thursday.
The words are borrowed from the song "Danger! High Voltage" by the Detroit-based rock band Electric Six.
James Bierman, co-owner of Central State Signing, said a hacker must have changed the message board.
The black-and-orange construction sign was placed on Interstate 39 because the state Department of Transportation contracted with United Painting of Forest Junction to repaint several overpasses in the area.
