After Eastern Road is paved in June the town intends to stripe it in a way that adds functionality and safety for walkers, joggers, and bikers that use it regularly.  Striping will delineate 4-5 ft. wide shoulder areas with dashed white lines on both sides of the road which will serve as advisory bike and pedestrian lanes.  This is the first pavement striping of this kind in Scarborough.  Therefore we are providing the attached information (Click on attachment to open).
