Budget cuts are slowing some safety upgrades to K-96.
Last year, Eyewitness News told you about a plan to install cables along the four miles of highway from I-135 to Rock Road.
The cables are designed to stop vehicles from going through the medians and hitting oncoming traffic. But a smaller KDOT budget has moved that project to February when the state opens up bids.
Work could start next spring.

Cables in the median may have prevented many accidents. In fact, some cable barriers flex up to 12 feet to allow drivers to safely stop their vehicles without re-entering traffic.
