Recovery funds bring SR 8 cable barrier to Grays Harbor County

This stretch of SR 8 carries approximately 17,000 vehicles a day.

Although no barrier can prevent every collision, high-tension cable barrier stops vehicles from crossing the median 95 percent of the time, reducing the potential for cross-over incidents.

This project, which is scheduled for completion July 2010, is expected to support 15 direct and indirect jobs.
