Drivers in the Southern Tier can expect to see expanded use of a roadway safety feature in coming months.

Centerline rumble strips will be added to several state-maintained highways in Broome and Tioga counties this year.

According to the New York State Department of Transportation, about seven miles of the centerline rumble strips were installed on Route 26 in Broome County last year. A 1.2-mile section of Route 17C in the town of Union also received the treatment.

The raised or grooved patterns can alert a driver with a rumbling sound and a physical vibration when a vehicle starts to stray from a driving lane.

Studies indicate the feature makes crashes less likely on rural two-lane roads, saving lives and reducing the number of injuries.

In Broome County, sections of Routes 7, 26, 38B, 79 and 206 are expected to receive centerline rumble strips in the coming months.

In Tioga County, portions of Routes 34, 38, 79, 96, 96B and 434 are targeted for the feature.
