Middle TN intentionally oiling the roads?? WTF?

The last week or so I've started to notice oil on the roads in Rutherford county and M-boro. The first place I noticed it was on us41/70 south of Smyrna, and I assumed some POS truck hauling to the Nissan plant was leaking. The last few days I've noticed it on several roads, and it's intentionally sprayed over the lane markings and a few inches on each side.

WTF is up with this? Anybody have any experience with this happening? I damn near low sided on US41/70 last week because of it before I know it was there.

I've noticed it. Can't think of any possible reason they'd put oil down. Maybe it's some kind of solvent or cleaner to prep the lines for repainting?

They are paving north of LaVergne and I just thought the POS oil truck driver was being an Ass and dropping oil anywhere he wanted its all the way to the Airport.. Best guess I have.. Sucks have to be extra careful of the road now as well as our wonderful cage drivers ..
