The Township's annual roadway line painting will occur on August 6, 7 & 10, weather permitting. To avoid getting paint on your vehicle, please stay well back from the paint truck, do not drive between the paint truck and their chase vehicle and do not drive across newly painted lines (typically marked with safety cones).

Sadly, there has been a spate of roadway line painter deaths this year. PLEASE use extra caution if you encounter this crew in your travels over the next few days. PLEASE be patient and respectful of them as they complete this important task. We want each of them to go home to their families, safe and sound and in one piece at the end of the job.

Please share this notice with your friends and neighbors who may not have access to our website.
