The City of Sunset Hills maintains a GIS datalayer that quantifies all the street pavement markings. This allowed City Staff to divide out 4 evenly match areas of street pavement markings to set up a cyclical pavement marking paint program. The City formerly relied on the durability of hot poured thermoplastic pavement markings with new constructed street projects, which in theory had a longer life, but proved in some cases to incompatible with snow plowing activities. With more frequent pavement management projects designed to extend the life of asphalt pavements, the decision to move to a regular interval of pavement paint became the focus. The highlighted streets in the map to the right, indicate what streets will be painted this year. The plan is to solicit for contract help to place line markings with City forces falling in behind general line striping with arrow, stop bar, and Crosswalk placement after lines are painted.
Again, as will all Sunset Hills projects, this page will follow a format of providing updates regarding project plan preparation, bid tabulation, review/award details, then daily updates of progress as the project gets underway.
