Submitted by The City of Tumwater

tumwater - town centerOn Friday, September 12, 2014, road crews will be painting new center lines, edge lines and bike lanes on streets throughout the City of Tumwater. Work will begin at 10:00 a.m. and continue to approximately 5:30 p.m. Some traffic delays are expected. Please do not pass painting equipment or travel over freshly painted lines.

Please avoid driving over wet paint.  The paint striping vehicle will be equipped with flashing lights, followed by at least two other vehicles with advisory signs. To avoid getting paint on your vehicle, do not pass the paint striping equipment and do not drive across painted lines if you see striping activity in the area. If you get paint on your vehicle, wash it off immediately.

This work will be completed by the City of Tumwater Public Works Department with assistance from the Lewis County Public Works road crew. The application of striping and pavement markings requires dry weather conditions.  If inclement weather prohibits work, the schedule will be extended to the following weekend.

Contact the City of Tumwater Public Works Operations and Maintenance Division at (360) 754-4150 for more information.
