Q. Why haven’t workers returned to the Gordon Road re-pavement project to finish their work yet? It was repaved in the fall, and some markings have been permanently repainted, but others (stop lines, etc.) on the side streets intersecting with Gordon have not been permanently repainted. Not that it matters to most drivers anyway, as most completely ignore the stop lines, but it would be nice to see the project finally finished.

A. The permanent markings will be completed on Gordon Road after March 16, said Wanda James, the N.C. Department of Transportation’s assistant resident engineer on the project.

James said the markings will be thermoplastic material, “and our specifications have seasonal limitations that prohibit us from placing the material between Dec. 15 and March 16.”
