    Street Sweeping Program

    Street sweeping keeps roads safe by removing debris, such as paper and leaves that may be an obstacle to pedestrians and bikes.  

    Sweeping removes debris that clog stormdrains and reduces the amount of pollutants that collects on city streets.

    Summer Roadwork

    Transportation’s pavement maintenance program treats select streets during the summer using different types of road repair, depending on the condition of the surface.  

    Learn more about our summer maintenance schedule.

    Traffic Lane Striping

    The City contracts with Multnomah County to maintain the traffic lane striping on Gresham roads and arterials.

    Motorists should obey the sign displays, proceed with caution and avoid driving over the wet stripes.

    • Traffic wears away paint on roadways and the striping has to be reapplied every year when the surface is dry and the temperature relatively warm.
    • Typically this work is done during the spring and summer months, and a second coat of paint is applied in the fall.

    What to expect during lane striping 

    There will be sufficient advance warning for motorists approaching a road striping operation. 

    • First, a slow-moving vehicle with a message board alternately displays, “Wet Paint” and “Do Not Pass.”
    • A second vehicle displays flashing lights and a warning sign of painting in progress. 
    • Lastly, flashing lights and a “Caution – Wet Paint” sign identify the striper truck, which sprays the paint stripes onto the road.

    About the paint

     The paint used on roads is water-borne, non-toxic and contains reflective glass beads. 

    If paint gets transferred on a vehicle, remove it immediately with soap and water before the paint has time to set.
