Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) workers will complete line painting work the week of Aug. 8, according to an announcement Friday.

Line painting is scheduled for a number of roads throughout the City of Erie between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., weather-permitting.

Another line painting crew will be working between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. in Warren and Forest counties.

Drivers who are in any areas while line-painting is underway are asked to follow these guidelines:

  • Stay back at least 500 feet from the equipment.
  • Don’t drive on wet paint lines.
  • Don’t pass the trucks in a paint train.
  • Be patient as the paint truck will pull over periodically to let traffic pass.

Weather conditions affect how quickly line paint will dry. Under ideal temperatures and humidity, the average time for the paint to be no track is 90 to 120 seconds.
