Construction spring to summer 2023

Crack sealing is the process of filling individual pavement cracks with an adhesive sealant to prevent entry of water or substances such as sand, dirt, rocks or weeds. 

Roads throughout Quinte West will undergo crack sealing as required during the summer of 2023.

Line painting will occur on roads throughout Quinte West in the summer of 2023.

Line painting on roads is an important highway safety feature that provides guidance to drivers and pedestrians. It includes lane lines, edge lines, centre lines and crosswalks.

Line painting is a moving operation. Flashing lights and signs are mounted on the back of equipment to warn motorists that line painting is being done.

Line painting tips for motorists

  • Slow down – line painting vehicles travel slowly so please slow down, stay alert and be patient when warned of work ahead
  • Keep back – stay at least 8 to 10 car lengths behind line painting equipment to avoid running over wet paint
  • Don’t pass – never pass a paint truck unless instructed to do so by a police officer; the paint truck will pull over to allow cars to pass when conditions are safe to do so

The following roads are scheduled to receive surface treatment in the summer of 2023: 

  • McMaster Road (English Settlement Road to Powerline Road)
