More Interstate Safety Barriers Going Up

The state has begun work on installing more than 50 miles of cable safety barriers along I-70.

INDOT officials say the fence-like barriers are intended to prevent fatal crashes.

Installation work will take place in Clay, Putnam, Morgan and Hendricks counties. The project is scheduled to be completed in November.

INDOT'S Debbie Caulder says the barriers are designed to control the cross-median crashes, which produce half of all severe outcome crashes and nearly two-thirds of fatal crashes nationwide.

Indiana has installed 369 miles of median cable barrier statewide since the pilot program began in 2005.
