Cable Median Barrier on SR 18 Stops Two Vehicles in One Hour

On June 11, cable median barrier stopped two vehicles from crossing into oncoming traffic on SR 18 in Federal Way. Both vehicles went off the highway just east of 304th Street in separate crashes about an hour apart.

Given the speed and direction of the vehicles, and the width and slope of the median, both vehicles likely would have crossed into oncoming traffic if the cable barrier had not been installed. Instead, the cars stopped in the median, and the drivers walked away uninjured.
