    MILILANI, HI (CNN) -- Some zigging and zagging center lines have some drivers scratching their heads in Mililani, Hawaii.

    It turns out it's a temporary center line made from tape and applied by hand after the road was repaved.

    The construction company that did the work says it's just a temporary fix until the asphalt cures.

    It says rain on Friday caused problems with the lines.

    It also said the temporary lines only serve as a lane divider and are not required to be straight.

    Workers returned to the site Monday morning to reapply new tape.

    A city spokesman says the contractor bears the cost of the temporary line, not the taxpayers.

    Straighter, permanent striping is set to be painted on in about a week-and-a-half.
