Median Cable Barriers Installation Underway
Posted: 1-Apr-2009 7:02AM CDT
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recently began installing cable barriers in the medians of some stretches of interstate. These barriers are intended to stop errant traffic from crossing the median.
From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Office of Public Affairs:
Median cable barrier installation to begin Monday along I-65 in Hardin
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 13, 2009) — Median cable barrier installation along Interstate 65, from mile marker 91 to mile marker 100, in Hardin County, is scheduled to begin Monday, March 16.
The northbound inside shoulder will be closed throughout the project, which is expected to take six to eight weeks. The northbound express lane will be closed intermittently on week days.
Installation of a second section, from mile marker 80 to mile marker 88, will begin as work on the northern section nears completion. That work will also require shoulder and intermittent lane closures. The barrier in both sections will be placed off-center on the northbound side of the median.
The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the work zone and motorists are urged to use extra caution.
The $1.9 million contract, for installation of both sections, was awarded to George B. Stone Company, LLC, of Sharpsburg, Ky.
