Moving Work Zone Paints Stripes on Highways

Three crews from Central Striping Company are painting yellow centerlines on various state-maintained highways in Floyd, Lawrence, and Pike counties. This work is weather dependent and work zones may move for the next several weeks. When work is finished in Lawrence, Floyd and Pike counties, they will move to roads in Johnson, Martin, Knott and Letcher counties. Mike Blevins, Engineer Technologist with Highway District 12, said that eventually two more crews will be added to stripe white edge lines. Blevins said this constitutes a moving work zone and that motorists should stay well behind the striping equipment, and avoid changing lanes and driving over the fresh paint.
