to install centerline rumble stripes on U.S. Route 250 through Tappan Lake area
HARRISON COUNTY – In an effort to improve
safety, ODOT’s maintenance crews will be installing rumble stripes on the
centerline of U.S. Route 250 through the Tappan Lake area next week.
Centerline rumble stripes are designed and
installed to reduce left-of-center crashes. The sound and
vibration created when a vehicle rides over the rumble stripe warns inattentive
or sleeping drivers that they are traveling left-of-center. State and national
studies have estimated that centerline rumble stripes can reduce crashes on
two-lane roads by up to 30 percent.
will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday, August 29th and 30th,
on nearly seven miles of U.S. 250 from Eslick Road
(TR 280) to Deersville Road (CR 55).
Traffic will be
maintained, but motorists are urged to use caution and plan ahead for delays.
