Street Lining Project Renewed for 2018


This season’s street lining process will continue based on a piloted project from 2017, saving the City close to $22,000 a year. In an ongoing effort to implement continuous improvement practices throughout the City’s operations, street lining crews are now applying a paint requiring about a minute to dry in good weather. This eliminates the need for crews to drop orange cones to warn drivers of newly painted lines. Eliminating this step saves crews from having to circle back to retrieve the cones.

To ensure the safety of crews and allow the paint to dry properly, motorists are asked to respect the street line painting truck distances and to not cut in between the street line painting truck and the support vehicle tailing behind. Cones may still be used in select areas depending on traffic density.

Crews began line painting in the uptown core last week and will be branching out to other areas of the City based on priority. The annual line painting program covers approximately 410 lane kilometres across the City. This year’s painting is expected to continue until early fall.
