Overnight Line Painting Operations on Route 28 Monday to Friday Nights, 9/16 – 9/20
​PennDOT District 11 is advising motorists that line painting operations will occur on various roadways in Allegheny County, Friday night, September 13 and Wednesday through Friday, September 16-20 weather permitting.
Line painting operations requiring single-lane restrictions will continue from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. according to the following schedule:
  • Wednesday through Friday nights, September 18-20 – Route 28 in both directions
PennDOT advises motorists to exercise caution and patience, and suggests allowing at least 250 feet (13 car lengths) behind line painting equipment to avoid damage.  Motorists should avoid passing the paint vehicles unless directed by a paint crew member or flag person to do so.  Passing too quickly can cause damage to fresh paint lines and may result in paint on the motorist’s vehicle.  Line painting vehicles normally pull over every two and one-half miles or when safety permits.  Recent technological advancements on the mix of formulas have produced fast dry paints that are dry to the touch within 2 to 3 minutes.  It is crucial to stay off these lines during the curing period.
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 de-natured alcohol and a soft cloth.  Generally, PennDOT is not responsible for paint on vehicles.

Southbound Route 19 to Westbound I-376 Parkway West Ramp Narrowing Begins Monday, 8/26, and Will Continue through Early November

PennDOT District 11 is announcing lane narrowing on the southbound Route 19 ramp to westbound I-376 (Parkway West) in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, will begin today, Monday, August 26 weather permitting.
