Sign Improves Motorists’ Safety in Highway Work ZonesAbstract:
Highway construction work has caused the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 west of State Route 267, just outside of Indianapolis, to be closed to traffic this summer. Traffic now travels in both directions on the westbound lanes. To ensure safe travel conditions, the Indiana Department of Transportation (DOT) has built a temporary curb and installed delineator tubes to indicate the temporary centerline of the road. To reinforce the message to drivers on this stretch of Interstate 70 that the traffic pattern has changed, Indiana DOT has set up a series of opposing traffic lane dividers. Developed under the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP), the opposing traffic lane divider is an orange sign that features two-way arrows clearly indicating that the traffic now flows in both directions.
