Wendy and Patrick Tully live along Garden Highway. A portion of it had been closed for several months due to levee repairs.

The Tullys told CBS13 that a sign in the area initially read "Garden Highway closed," but was hacked overnight, displaying the f-word to read "Happy 4th F------!"

Wendy Tully said her daughter was driving along Garden Highway Sunday morning when she snapped a picture of it.

The sign has since been changed back.
