Installation of cable barriers on a Kansas highway beginning Monday.
K-Dot crews will install the cables on a four mile stretch of K-96, from I-135 to Rock Road. The barriers help prevent drivers from crossing the median.
According to a K-DOT study, between 2002 and 2006, there were 126 accidents where drivers crossed medians.
"Actually, it's on K-96 where I've seen the worst car accidents," said Andrew Potter who recently finished training to become a paramedic.
The project will cost more than seven hundred thousand dollars to complete.
"If it saves lives, then it's worth it," Potter says.
K-Dot says drivers should be prepared for an ocassional lane closure during the installation.
