Pavement Markings

The Traffic, Parking & Transportation Department installs and maintains all of the pavement markings on public streets owned by the City. Pavement markings (also called road striping or lane lines) include crosswalks, double yellow lines (center lines), white lanes lines, bike lanes, and symbols (such as arrows and text). 

Each year TP&T engineers inspect every street in Cambridge to assess which markings need repair or replacement. Next, a work plan for the year is assembled. Finally, the City’s pavement marking contractor, under the supervision of the engineer, works at night during the warm weather months to apply new markings to the street.
