Watch out for the moving pavement marker next week!

Tuesday through Friday, K&G Striping of Riverside, Mo., will refresh the pavement markings on various streets in Salina. The streets receiving updates include the following.

●Fifth Street from East Prescott Avenue to East Elm Street

●Seventh Street from West South Street to West Elm Street

●Cloud Street from South Broadway Boulevard to South Ohio Street

●North Ohio Street from East Ash Street to East Elm Street

●East Pacific Avenue from North Fourth Street east to the city limits

●West State Street from North Broadway Boulevard to the west city limits

The roads being striped were resurfaced and consequently striped around five years ago and need refreshing before their next resurfacing, according to information from the City of Salina.

The paint is usually applied by a moving vehicle with minimum traffic control and therefore few inconveniences to traffic. The paint dries in minutes.

Motorists should maintain their distance from the vehicle at all times and avoid contact with freshly painted lines.

Motorists are also encouraged to seek alternate routes when they see that work is occurring.

The $20,000 project is part of the City of Salina's $4.7 million maintenance capital improvement program.
