No zombie sightings despite warning on 520on June 25, 2012 @ 9:57 am (Updated: 12:53 pm - 6/25/12 )
Drivers headed toward Bellevue were greeted with "Warning: Zombies Ahead." According to q13fox.com, the sign also switched to "012 GHS WEOUTCHA YEWB$"
Road crews were sent out to change the signs before too long.
It's not entirely clear who or how the signs were tampered with, but Kris Olsen with the Washington State Department of Transportation said it wasn't an easy feat.
"These signs are password protected. So they managed to bypass those security (measures)," she said. "We're going to work with the contractors to make sure to strengthen those security procedures and the passwords to make sure that doesn't happen again."
Olsen said not only does tampering with the signs compromise the safety of drivers and road crews, it's also a felony.
There are no clear suspects, but the theory is that GHS could stand for Garfield High School, with "012" giving credit to the class of 2012.
