FAIL! Ketchikan and POW State Road Crews Mess Up Paint Job!

Ketchikan Gateway Borough Mayor David Landis says the lines are crooked, thick and wet - leaving cars around town, including his own, spotted with yellow paint.

The Ketchikan Daily News reported ( ) Saturday that the state Department of Transportation tried out a new striping system on the highway. Department spokeswoman Meadow Bailey says the state is having some challenges with the new system. She says they're working to improve the process.

Bailey said the state will not repaint the yellow lines. [Source]
