FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Motorists in Northern Kentucky did a double take Thursday morning when a construction sign read, "Nightly lane closures - Zombies ahead."

The sign is located in a construction area on southbound I-71/75 near the Ky. 18 exit.

According the Nancy Wood with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the sign belongs to a private contractor. Transportation cabinet officials are not sure when the sign was changed or who changed it. Wood says officials were made aware of the issue Thursday morning and worked as fast as they could to get it fixed.

Wood said the signs are there for the safety of motorists and should not be messed with.
