Highway Line Painting Begins This Week


Drivers are reminded to slow down and be patient as crews begin painting lines on Nova Scotia highways.

Warm, sunny weather means crews are able to repaint the yellow and white lines on roads.

It’s important that drivers coming across a line-painting crew slow down and follow traffic control signing. This will help ensure the safety of the public and crew as they complete this important work.

The province uses a string of vehicles, called a train, of a paint truck, trail vehicle, with a crash-absorbing trailer and electronic arrow board, and a second trail vehicle with an electronic message board.

Approaching traffic must follow the instructions on the message and arrow boards until they pass the entire group.

The province has four paint crews on the roads in dry weather. Their goal is to paint all road lines in the province by mid-October.
