“Road work ahead? Yeah, well I sure hope it does”

The sign “Road Work Ahead” means that the road is being fixed. It does not mean that the “road works ahead,” but there have been jokes. “ROAD WORK AHEAD? UH YEAH, I SURE HOPE IT DOES” is a saying that has been printed on images.

“I just saw a ‘Road Work Ahead’ sign. I certainly hope it does Mr. Troglodyte sign. #Joke” was posted on Twitter by Kevin Kincaid on July 15, 2014. The saying went viral in March 2016. “Road work ahead? uh, yeah… i sure hope it does!” was posted on Twitter on March 21, 2016.
