DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The Dayton City Commission approved new plans to make a stretch of US Route 35 safer for motorists.
The commission agreed that a barrier between the east and westbound lanes from Abbey Avenue to James H. McGee Boulevard is needed.
The barrier is designed to prevent crossover crashes.
Orange barrels line that stretch right now for a different construction project, but with the commissioners' approval, the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin new construction on the barrier wall next August.
Rumble strips will also be placed on both sides of the pavement.
The project has a $1.3 million price tag.
