INDIANA (WTHI) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will be installing new median cable barriers on Interstate 70 in four counties.

Cable barrier systems are lines of highly tensioned cables between anchored posts in the medians of roads and are designed to control cross-median crashes.

Cable barriers can be a cost effective system to reduce the frequency and severity of cross-median collisions and save lives.

Work on 40 miles of I-70 in Clay, Putnam, Morgan and Hendricks Counties will begin on June 2 from the 18 mile marker to the 48 mile maker.

There will be nightly left lane restrictions from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
