Someone who had access to a digital road sign on the northeast portion of Anthony Henday Drive, decided to have a little too much fun with it on Saturday night.
The flashing sign read “New North A. Henday” — “Now Open” — “We Done B*tches”
Pictures of it have been making the rounds on social media.

Alberta’s Transportation Ministry provided a statement to Global News saying it was aware of the prank.
“Two-thousand people worked very hard to bring this project to completion and there’s obviously a lot of pride in that work,” a ministry spokesperson said. “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.”
It is not clear who put up the message, or if there will be any repercussions against them.
The northeast portion of Anthony Henday Drive was opened to the public on Saturday, marking the end of 16 years worth of ring road construction. (td)
