Earning their stripes

A road-painting crew from American Roadway Logistics in Richfield was painting white “stop bars” at several intersections on Monday. The work is part of a $719,676 repaving of state routes inside the city. ODOT is doing the project in conjunction with the city in an 80/20 split for the total cost. American Roadway Logistics specializes in maintenance of traffic and is prequalified by the ODOT for multiple work types. The road crew was spray-painting a primer coat. Another coat will be painted later. (Salem News photo by Larry Shields)
