Watch for nighttime work on Interstate 70

TERRE HAUTE — A contractor plans to begin work Monday on installing new median cable barriers on 40 miles of Interstate 70 in Clay, Putnam, Morgan and Hendricks counties.

The Indiana Department of Transportation said in a press release the work will include the area from the 18- to the 58-mile marker.

Nightly left lane restrictions will be in place from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. in the area., INDOT said.

RMD Holdings of Chesterfield, Michigan, submitted the low bid of $2 million to install the barrier. Work is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 22.

Since beginning a pilot program in 2005, Indiana has installed 369 miles of median cable barriers statewide at a cost of $30.7 million.

 Cable barrier systems are lines of highly tensioned cables between anchored posts in road medians. They are designed to control cross-median crashes, which have produced half of all severe-outcome crashes and nearly two-thirds of fatal crashes nationwide.
