In preparation for the upcoming school year, the city is repainting the street markings around the city. The street painting project includes repainting intersections, lane direction markings, stop lines, cross walks, speed bumps, bus stops, drop off spots near elementary schools and handicap parking near public buildings and schools. The purpose of the street painting project is to increase safety on city roads and allow the users a way to clearly identify the markings found on the road. Most of the work is done at night so as not to interfere with the flow of traffic around the city. The city is also fixing up the bus stops around the city that are used by students throughout the year.
