Like it’s something new:
Workers have begun stringing metal cable barriers down the median of Del. 1 that will not only stop vehicles from crossing over into oncoming traffic, but also ease the impact when a car hits them.
The modern take on roadside barriers offers a safer alternative to concrete or metal versions that are more expensive and can do more damage to vehicles, DelDOT spokesman Jim Westhoff said. The new addition to Del. 1 beginning south of the Roth Bridge will be the first use of cable barriers in Delaware.
Bringing Delaware’s highways into the 1920s.
