Line painting planned in Baldwin, Whitehall, other South Hills communities
Line paining will take place in several South Hills communities between Oct. 14 and 20, PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said in an email.
Work will occur from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. each day on East Willock Road in Baldwin Borough; Baptist Road in both Whitehall and Bethel Park; Scrubgrass Hill Road in Mt. Lebanon; Weyman Road in Whitehall; Fort Couch Road in Upper St. Clair; and Gilkeson and Connor roads in Mt. Lebanon and Castle Shannon.
In an email, Cowan said PennDOT generally is not responsible for paint on vehicles.
The agency recommends drivers stay at least 500 feet behind line painting crews.
“Motorists should avoid passing the paint vehicles unless directed by a paint crew member or flag person to do so,” according to Cowan's release. “Passing too quickly can cause damage to fresh paint lines and may result in paint on the motorist's vehicle.
Drivers who do get paint on their vehicles “should immediately wash the paint off with a high-pressure water stream and detergent. Dried paint can be removed with de-natured alcohol and a soft cloth,” according to Cowan's release.
