Pavement Markings

Pavement markings indicate which part of the road to use, provide information about conditions ahead, and, overall, are a vital part of communicating the traffic movement. DDOT’s striping season has now officially ended due to drop in temperature. Optimal striping weather is warm and sunny (45 degrees and above with low humidity). Cooler temperatures prevent successful paint application. During colder weather, DDOT installs, when and where needed, temporary roadway marking tape. The 2018 striping season will begin March 2018, weather permitting.
