Zebulon Rd. to get new stripes

The traffic lanes on Zebulon Road will get a new look after some neighbors spoke out.

Some neighbors told 13WMAZ the street striping on the stretch between Forsyth Rd and Plantation Centre Drive is so faded that it's too dangerous to drive on.

A 2013 traffic study said nearly 27,000 cars travel Zebulon Road daily.

Virgia Lee Dorr has lived off Zebulon for 28 years.

She says she started complaining to the county a few months ago after the driver of another car veered into her lane, nearly causing an accident.

"When it's daylight and you're driving, you can see [the lines]. But at night when you're driving and the car lights are hitting you, you're trying to see where the white lines are, and especially the yellow lines, they're just about all gone," Dorr said.

County spokesman Chris Floore says Macon-Bibb recently ordered more than $8,500 in street striping paint to restripe Zebulon Road and other county streets that need it.

Commissioner Mallory Jones, who represents the district, says restriping should be finished by July 25.

"Whether you're young or old or whatever age, you need to know where the lanes are," Jones said. "So this is something we need to do."
