A median cable barrier project that will increase safety along Interstate 71 began Monday, May 4.
In all, 24.5 miles of median cable barrier will be added along sections in Boone, Carroll, Henry and Oldham counties.
“The median cable barriers are designed to help reduce the chances of crossover collisions,” said Rob Hans, Chief District Engineer for Department of Highways District 6, in Covington.
George B. Stone Company, LLC of Sharpsburg, Kentucky was awarded the contract on a low-bid of $3.1 million.
