Caution, Wet Paint on Roads!


October 3, 2012

A contractor working for Snohomish County has begun applying 152 miles of stripes along 38 miles of the following roads, in the following order:

Ben Howard Road (between Monroe and Sultan) - currently working on this road

Jordan Road (between Granite Falls and Arlington)

Pioneer Highway (south of Stanwood)

Pioneer Highway (north of Stanwood)

67th Avenue NE (between Marysville and Arlington)

The crew will be working on each road at three different times between September 25 and mid November. The center lines will be striped on all of the roads, then the edge lines on one side of each road, then the edge lines on the other side of each road. This method will prevent a shutdown on any of the roads, however, there will be traffic delays.

NOTE: During striping, orange cones will block each driveway for approximately 45 minutes to allow the paint to dry. If you drive over wet paint, you could get paint on your vehicle.

This project is highly weather dependent, and is scheduled to continue through mid November.
