Project Facts

  • Goal: Reduce accidents/head-on collisions by installing rumble strips in lanes
  • Cost: $298,000
  • Contractor: Surface Preparation Technologies, LLC
  • Timeline: June - July 2019
  • Location: a 60-mile stretch of US Highway 6 from the Nebraska state line to Sterling, in Logan and Phillips counties

This project team will install rumble strips—used to alert drivers that they've traveled outside their lane—and paint lines along US Highway 6 from the Nebraska border west to Sterling.

Rumble strips are cost-effective tools that reduce the likelihood of motorists crossing over into other lanes and causing head-on collisions.
