– Authorities are adding construction barrels and radar speed-check signs along part of Interstate 90 east of Cleveland after a pileup temporarily shut down the eastbound highway for more than 10 miles last week.

The speed limit in the area is 55 mph, and the State Highway Patrol has said vehicle speed in wintry, whiteout conditions contributed to multiple crashes in the area Dec. 24. Eight people were hurt.

The Plain Dealer newspaper (http://bit.ly/18UDyQj ) reports construction barrels are being added on certain sections to signal the edge of the road and help travelers navigate more safely. And radar signs that check and display the speed of passing drivers are being placed at various points.

Troopers also hope to deter speeding by increasing their presence in the area.
