 Brampton - The Region of Peel is currently performing the annual pavement marking retracing program on regional roads across Peel. Drivers should be aware of line painting crews.  When driving by, steer clear of making lane changes and avoid driving into coned off areas until well beyond the work crews to prevent tracking wet paint.

 Pavement-marking paint vehicles are followed by a blocker vehicle about 100 to 150 metres behind. Do not make lane changes or cross in-between the paint vehicle and the blocker vehicle to avoid tracking paint and spoiling the pavement. Drivers should continue to refrain from making lane changes or crossing pavement markers until the blocker vehicle is well out of sight after some distance. Following these suggestions will help drivers minimize vehicle exposure to wet paint.

 Crews are currently painting on Winston Churchill Boulevard and Airport Road. Work will continue on these roads for another two weeks. Painting will then begin on Erin Mills Parkway/Mississauga Road.

 Most work takes place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. with some work during the day. Daytime work is marked with safety cones.

 Drivers should follow us on Twitter for updates on pavement marking progress and upcoming roads that will be painted: Twitter.com/peelpublicworks
