BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - The Ohio Department of Transportation says it's making changes to increase the visibility of certain highway signs meant to alert drivers that they're heading the wrong way.
The Wednesday announcement came about three months after a pair of wrong-way crashes in northwest Ohio killed six people, including three Bowling Green State University sorority sisters.
The department says some of the upgrades are part of regularly scheduled work meant to improve wrong-way, one-way and "do not enter" signs.
It will post extra wrong-way signs at interchange ramps in Henry, Lucas, Sandusky and Wood counties.
The signs will be mounted lower than usual to help make them more visible in vehicle headlights at night.
Officials also are increasing markers and pavement arrows to clarify proper routes on side-by-side entrance and exit ramps.
