The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that line painting is planned on various routes in Cumberland County.
Weather permitting, line painting will be done nightly between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on the following routes:
- Route 15
- Interstate 83
- Highway 581
It will be a mobile operation. Motorists should be alert and watch for line painting equipment moving slowly on the roadway.
To avoid getting paint on your vehicle, here are some tips:
- Stay 500 feet from our line painting equipment
- Don’t drive over wet paint lines
- Do not cross the trucks in the paint train
- Please wait. The paint truck will periodically stop to allow traffic to pass.
