Crash Investigation Site
Question Corner: May 2014
From the May, 2014 issue
Q. What is the purpose of the "Crash Investigation Site" on eastbound I-94 a short distance east of the Jackson entrance ramp? Since there doesn't seem to be another on the westbound side, how effective is it?
A. Crash investigation sites are established along heavily traveled freeways. These bump-outs provide a safe refuge for vehicles that have been involved in a minor accident, getting them out of the way of freeway traffic while accident reporting is conducted.
