Construction of barrier on Highway 60 in Beaumont begins

Construction has started this month on a Highway 60 median barrier west of the I-10 junction in Beaumont to close a center-divider gap along a route beset by accidents, including two fatal collisions, not to mentioned countless near misses between trucks and cars over the past 25 years that this section of the freeway has been completed. I know, I've had more near misses on this section than any other section of roadway in southern California.
