Coral Gables Misspells LeJeune Road Sign For the Second Time
Coral Gables has misspelled a sign identifying LeJeune Road. Which wouldn't be so embarrassing if it wasn't the second time they've done so. (Note: No, I havn't taking a xtra joyb righting sings.)
The sign on the intersection of LeJeune Road and Mendoza Avenue identifies the road as "LeJuene Road." A previous mistake had identified the street as "Le June Road."
The street is officially named after John A. LeJeune, the 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps. Though, historically the road denoted the border of the property of Charles Le Jeune, who owned a large citrus grove in the area before selling it to Coral Gables developer George Merrick.
