Training for Minnesota highway safety improvements

DETROIT LAKES, Minn (KFGO AM) -- With new Cable Median Barriers going up in Minnesota, local emergency responders received special training for handling them.

MNDOT maintenance employees, fire fighters and tow truck drivers were shown how to cut or take apart the cables if a vehicle crashes into a section, and how to make adjustments on the slack if necessary.

MNDOT says the barriers save lives because they prevent vehicles that drive off the road from crossing the median and hitting oncoming traffic.
