En dépit du

Hi

Why is the test answer as follows: Je prends cette rue en dépit du panneau stop instead of en dépit de panneau stop?  I couldn't see any explanations for this on the lesson, I could on see du used in the exception en dépit du bon sense.

Thanks

En dépit “de le” panneau stop. — Despite the stop sign. 

The definite article le makes de to du
