Repainting of road lines in Lexington must be done in daylight hours
The SC Department of Transportation is repainting road lines at intersections, Tuesday. The road striping is going on, on Sunset Boulevard (US-378) in Lexington between North Lake Drive (SC-6) to I-20 until approximately 4 p.m. The painting is causing lane closures for both inbound and outbound traffic.
Work is being done at one intersection at a time and it will affect local traffic on Sunset Boulevard close to the work area.
The Lexington Police Department said the work is done during daytime hours, because the paint striping has to cure within a certain temperature range. Nighttime temperatures fall outside of the needed range. LPD photo.
