City of Ferndale will be painting traffic lanes in the Ferndale area Saturday, August 26th and Saturday, Sept 9th weather permitting. Signs and cones will be utilized to keep drivers out of the wet paint and No Parking signs will be going up in various locations in order to maintain access to paint areas. Please follow directions and do not park in places identified for painting by the signage.
The fresh coats of paint that crews apply during spring, summer and fall months will make it easier for drivers to see the road when the winter rains return.
What can drivers do to avoid the wet paint?
Drivers can protect their car from damage by keeping an eye out for striping crews and avoiding lane changes on freshly painted lines.
What can I do if I get striping paint on my vehicle?
The paint is engineered to last however, it is water-based, drivers may have about one hour to wash it off with soap, water and a high-pressure hose. The sooner it is scrubbed, the easier it will be to remove.
