Line-painting project ongoing
Drivers on paved roads in Washington County should be on the lookout for line-painting trucks until next Tuesday or Wednesday.
Washington County Engineer Jacob Thorius said Vogel Traffic Services has been hired by the county to repaint the lines on all of the paved roads in Washington County.
The county expected Vogel Traffic Services to be in Washington County two weeks ago, but the wet weather delayed Vogel’s other projects and, as a result, the time they would be in the county painting, Thorius said.
“The dry weather has helped them this week,” he said.
Thorius encourages drivers to be cautious if they come across the line-painting company over the weekend. He asks drivers to slow down and think before passing them.
“Just know if you pass the trucks you’ll be driving over wet paint,” he said.
The dry weather has also helped with the construction projects in the county, Thorius said.
The Wayland Road Bridge, also called County Route W55 over Crooked Creek, has the decking completely removed. Now construction crews are working on the piers and tightening the steel, which will take the most time, Thorius said.
The work construction on Vine Avenue is also moving along, Thorius said. The entire pavement has been laid and work on the shoulders has begun.
“We’re expecting Vine Avenue to be reopened next month,” he said.
