(2) By June 30, 2018, the department shall install roadside barriers to shield water bodies contiguous with state roads at locations where a death due to drowning resulted from a motor vehicle accident in which a vehicle departed the adjacent state road during the period between July 1, 2006, and July 1, 2016. This requirement does not apply to any location at which the department’s chief engineer determines, based on engineering principles, that installation of a barrier would increase the risk of injury to motorists traveling on the adjacent state road.
