Bill Miller has been crossing a lot of streets lately.
He’s not just trying to get to the other side of the road.
Using a four-wheeled paint gun powered by compressed air, the Corry Streets Department employee has been marking crosswalks with bright, white paint.
Freshening up crosswalks at intersections and painting traffic arrows, as well as painting yellow centerlines on streets is an annual rite of summer for the streets department.
Workers began last week by painting traffic arrows on the asphalt surfaces. Now, nearly all the crosswalks in downtown Corry have been painted.
The streets department now will concentrate on painting crosswalks near Corry schools, which are set to open for the new school year Wednesday.
Once those crosswalks are painted, workers will fan out to continue the job at intersections in each of the city’s four wards.
