The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provided $9 million to retrofit low-tension cable barrier across the state.
We install cable guardrail because it helps keep motorists safe. Severe injuries and fatalities often result when a vehicle crosses the median and collides with oncoming traffic.
Cable median barrier helps prevent cars from crossing the median and potentially causing deadly head-on collisions. According to statewide statistics, 95 percent of cars that hit the cable barrier are stopped from crossing the median. No barrier can stop every mishap every time, but cable barrier greatly improves safety for drivers.
Partnerships & Cooperation
The statewide cable barrier retrofit project was fully funded by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
Total federal funding - $9.0 million
