Roadway Lane Lining Program begins

WINNIPEG - May 5, 2003 - The City's annual lane line painting program will commence May 5th. 

Throughout the summer crews will line over 1,000 kilometres of roadway, 575 intersections, 150 pedestrian corridors and 400 crosswalks. Lines on major routes will be painted two or more times during the program.

In total approximately 68,000 litres of paint mixed with roughly 22,500 kilograms of glass beads will be applied to the roadways. The glass beads improve reflectivity of the painted lines.

Motorists are urged to exercise caution when approaching painting machinery and personnel.

Cost of the painting program is approximately $355,000.
