[INDOT-West Central] Safety Project Awarded to Surface Preparation Technologies

Entry Description

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 20, 2013

 

Safety Project Awarded to Surface Preparation Technologies

Crews will begin working on Monday

 

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announce various roads within the Crawfordsville District will have edge and center line rumble strips installed beginning on or after Monday, September 23.  The project has been awarded to Surface Preparation Technologies, LLC for $349,658. 

The center line rumble strips will be installed on these four roadways:

·        State Road 25 in Tippecanoe County from four miles west of Shadeland to US 231.  This section will also have edge line rumble strips installed.

·        State Road 43 in Tippecanoe and White Counties from State Road 225 to just south of Brookston.

·        US 421 in Boone County from just north of E. Sycamore Street to nearly State Road 32.  This section will also have edge line rumble strips installed.

·        State Road 267 in Hendricks and Boone Counties from I-74 to approximately three miles south of I-65.

 

Edge line rumble strips are very similar to shoulder rumble strips, but placed at the edge of the travel lane, typically in line with the edge line pavement marking.  Center line rumble strips are installed at or near the center line of an undivided roadway, and may be comprised of either a single or double line of rumbles.  These treatments are found to reduce run-off-road right crashes and cross center line crashes such as head-on collisions.

 

Rumble strips are intended to save lives and prevent serious injury by alerting drivers that they are leaving the driving lane.  They consist of raised or grooved patterns on the roadway.  They provide the driver with both an audible warning (rumbling sound) and a physical vibration.

 

There will be lane restrictions in the area the contractor will be working.  Construction should be completed by October 31, 2012.

 

INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a construction zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot.
