Street Line Painting Continues August 31, 2020

The City of The Dalles Public Works Department will continue to paint the center and side lines on streets throughout the community on Monday August 31 through Thursday September 3, 2020 beginning at 6:00 am each day, weather permitting.

Motorists are asked to watch for the crews and avoid driving on the wet paint. The paint truck will be preceded and followed by warning vehicles, with signs calling attention to the wet paint. The trucks will be spaced according to the necessary drying time of the paint. Attempting to pass or drive between the trucks will result in a messy striping job and paint damage to the motorist’s vehicle.

The purpose of this project is to provide clear lane and bike path designations for the safety of the traveling public.

Motorists are strongly advised to avoid the wet paint because it cannot be easily removed from vehicles.

Please proceed with caution around work areas and observe all temporary traffic control devices. Thank you for your assistance during this work.
