Motorists Advised of I-80 Line Painting in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton Counties

Motorists Advised of I-80 Line Painting in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton Counties

Clearfield –PennDOT is advising drivers on I-80 of line painting operations in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton counties, set to start next week. All line painting work is weather dependent with crews beginning work in Clearfield County.

On Monday, Sept 8, line painting will take place eastbound and westbound in Clearfield County from mile-marker 120/Clearfield to mile-maker 139/Centre County line. On Tuesday, Sept. 9, PennDOT plans to line paint eastbound and westbound in Clearfield County from mile-marker 123/Woodland to mile-marker 96/DuBois.

Sept. 15 and 16 will move line painting activity to Centre and Clinton counties, with crews line painting eastbound and westbound from mile-marker 139/Centre County line to mile-marker 170/Lamar in Clinton County.

Sept. 22 and 23 will complete Clinton County line painting, with crews painting from mile-marker 170/Lamar to mile-marker 194/Mile Run.

Motorists will find line painting information available on permanent and portable message boards in the region and on the Highway Advisory Radio System at 1640 on the AM dial.

Annual painting helps to improve the visibility of road lines and enhances roadway safety. With safety the number one concern during all painting operations, drivers should be aware that:

• The line painting operation is a moving operation. “LINE PAINTING – WET PAINT” signs and flashing lights are mounted on the back of equipment to warn motorists of the painting operation.
• Motorists should stay at least eight to ten car lengths behind line painting
equipment to avoid running over wet paint. The paint spray guns are two
inches off the roadway surface and cannot spray a vehicle. Paint can only get
on a vehicle if a driver runs over wet lines.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
