Yeah, if all you see is like an image like that in Facebook or wherever you saw it, it helps to do a google search and see if you can find an article that backs it up. When I did that the snopes article was the top result.

That photo looks like something that was taken during the construction phase and some wit added the news text or whatever those are called to make a funny meme.
