Officials in Hartford hope a new safety feature will make a dangerous stretch of road safer.
The state is in the process of installing miles of rumble strips under the center double lines on Route 4. The strips alert drivers if they begin to drift.
During the past year there have been a handful of deadly crashes on Route 4, including head-on collisions. The rumble strips are in addition to stepped up patrols on the road, all in an effort to keep drivers safe.
"It's really a partnership between us and the state of Vermont. The addition of the rumble strips really just allows another safety factor that will hopefully catch drivers' attentions and prevent them from crossing the center line when we have such tragic consequences," said Steve Locke, the Hartford Public Service director.
