(INDIANAPOLIS) - Contractors are starting to fit sections of two interstates in central and western Indiana with more than 50 miles of cable safety barriers intended to prevent deadly crashes.

The fence-like cable barriers can prevent vehicles from crossing highway medians and colliding with oncoming traffic.
The Indiana Department of Transportation says a contractor will begin work Monday installing 40 miles of cable barriers along Interstate 70 in Clay, Putnam, Morgan and Hendricks counties. That $2 million project should be done by late November.

Another contractor will is to install 11 miles of cable barriers along I-65 in Tippecanoe and White counties. That $626,000 project will be done in late October.

Indiana has installed 369 miles of median cable barrier statewide since 2005 at a cost of nearly $31 million.
