Lexington Public Works To Begin Pavement Marking
Lexington Public Works crew will begin semiannual pavement marking and striping within the downtown area on Sunday, April 23, weather permitting.
It is expected the work will take five to seven nights to complete. The crew will work from midnight to 8 a.m. to minimize disruption to traffic and normal business activity. Work consists of painting lane markings, stop lines, parking spaces, arrows, crosswalks, and curbs on streets and in municipal parking lots. Work may extend into the week of May 1 or later if weather delays occur. Some streets will not be striped and marked, such as Jefferson, because of planned resurfacing in late spring.
The downtown work area typically includes Main Street from McDowell Street to the north city line; Washington Street from East Nelson Street to West Nelson Street; Henry Street; Preston Street; Varner Lane; Randolph Street; Jefferson Street; and Lee Avenue. Space markings in McCrum’s, Old Firehouse, and Roy Smith municipal lots are also included.
Motorists traveling through the downtown area are requested to exercise extreme care when driving at night.
Striping and marking in other parts of the city will be performed in August.
