EUDORA (AP) -- The Johnson County Commission is proposing a
project to install cable median barriers in two spots on Kansas
Highway 10 between Lawrence and Lenexa.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the proposal includes
installing two miles of cable from near Kansas 10 and Kansas 7 in
Johnson County. The other would be a one-mile stretch near Eudora.
The push for the cable barriers increased when two Eudora
residents, including a 5-year-old, were killed when a car drifted
across the median and hit their car.
Gov. Sam Brownback ordered state transportation officials to
work with Johnson County and Douglas County to decide whether to
install cable-median barriers on the highway. The transportation
department said in a 2008 study that the highway did not qualify
for the barriers.
