Stay Off the Line – Give it Time!

The paint truck will be followed by several “trail vehicles” with signs warning motorists not to pass. It is important to stay behind the paint truck and trail vehicles to give paint time to dry. Even if you do not see the vehicles or signs, please avoid driving over lines that appear fresh as they may still be drying. If you do get paint on your vehicle, rinse it off immediately. The paint is water-based and will wash off if done right away.

Track the Paint Truck to Avoid Tracking Paint

The best way to avoid wet paint and delays is by knowing where the paint truck is before you hit the road. This year, we are providing a live map at olympiawa.gov/striping that shows the paint truck’s current location and where it has been for the last 20 minutes. You can check to see where we are anytime during the day, before you leave home or work, and plan your route accordingly.
