The Bottom Line on Lines
Prince George, B.C. – The lack of lane lines on Prince George roadways has been a cause of much concern in the City of Prince George. But don’t expect any lines to appear for at least another month.
The City’s Manager of the Streets Division, Blake MacIntosh has told City Council, there are some key factors which fine tune when the lines are applied.
First, the streets have to be cleared of all grit from the winter traction applications. Then, there is weather, the ambient temperatures has to be at least 10 degrees Celsius. That allows for rapid drying of the lines so the paint isn’t tracked all over the roadway.
Secondly, crews need the longer hours of daylight so work can start early in the morning before traffic volume builds.
In the detailed report presented to Council, it is estimated the line painting won’t start until early June.
