DOT Adds Safety Measures to Deadly I-95 Construction Zone

Posted February 12, 1998 6:00 a.m. EST

— Department of Transportation workers are trying to prevent more accidents from happening on a stretch of Interstate-95 in Robeson County. Rumble strips are being installed along the highway near Lumberton.

Workers are also putting reflectors on top of concrete barriers.

Two fatal accidents on a construction zone there last month have sped up the effort to increase safety measures.
