Pavement Restriping Program Begins May 6, 2019

portland news

Please be advised that street and crosswalk restriping work will begin Monday, May 6, and will continue throughout the spring. Crews will be working the daytime hours to take advantage of the warmer temps so the new paint can dry quicker. Weather is a factor as the painting work cannot occur when the street is wet or during a rain event. Work will begin in the Old Port and spread across the city from there. The long line restriping work will begin in early June. A second coating for all restriping will occur in the fall. 

Public advised to use caution at newly painted intersections and streets. Please obey all safety zones and do not drive or walk over fresh paint in the work areas. Pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists should use caution while crossing newly-painted areas and be aware of the glass beads used in the process can be slippery while the paint is drying. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.
