The sign was supposed to warn motorists of road construction, including lane closures, ahead on Stadium Boulevard. City officials received reports on Sunday afternoon that it had been reprogrammed to simply read: "YOLO."
"We turned off the sign on Monday, and on Tuesday the contractor corrected the message and turned it on again," said Homayoon Pirooz, head of the city's project management unit.
"It should be on and working now," he said on Wednesday afternoon.
East Stadium is expected to be resurfaced and reopened by the end of October. The nearby Stadium bridges are scheduled to reopen to traffic on Nov. 14.
