Roadway Markings and Painting

StopPublic Works (PW) installs and maintains roadway markings on city-owned streets and parking lots. These include lane delineation dots and striping, curb painting and parking stall lines. Traffic safety and law enforcement needs drive when and where markings are re-painted or newly installed. PW is not responsible for lane delineation on El Camino Real or Woodside Road, or any markings on the Highway 101 over-crossings.
