Painted road lines.

PennDOT crews will paint lines on various roads in eastern suburban communities through July 6.

The painting is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day on the following roads:

• Route 286 in Monroeville and Plum;

• Routes 130, 30, 48 in various communities;

• Route 2073, also known as Allegheny River Boulevard, in Plum, Verona and Oakmont;

• Route 2054, also known as Northern Pike, in Monroeville;

• Route 2080, also known as Plum Street and Hunter Road, in Oakmont and Penn Hills;

• Route 2071, also known as Shannon Road, in Penn Hills;

• Route 2066, also known as Lott Road, Frankstown Road, Old Frankstown Road and Sagamore Hill, in Penn Hills and Plum;

• Route 2063, also known as Frey Road, in Penn Hills;

• Route 2064, also known as Lime Hollow Road, in Penn Hills;

• Route 380, also known as Frankstown Road and Saltsburg Road, in various communities.

PennDOT said painting will stop on July 4 in observance of Independence Day.

Motorists are advised to stay at least 250 feet behind line-painting equipment to avoid damage, and to be aware of changing traffic patterns.

“Passing too quickly can cause damage to fresh paint lines and may result in paint on the motorist’s vehicle,” said a PennDOT news release, adding it takes about two to three minutes for the paint to dry.

“Motorists who accidentally 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 a de-natured alcohol and a soft cloth. Generally, PennDOT is not responsible for paint on vehicles,” PennDOT said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
