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

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

• 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.
