Pavement Markings

stripingStriping season is underway, weather permitting. 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. 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 temporary roadway marking tape, as needed.

If you live in, or near any of the project areas, please remove your vehicles by the posted times, and encourage your neighbors to do the same.
