Although McLeod said DelDOT had already planned to install the cable barriers, the move follows a crash last week in which police said 61-year-old Audie Trinidad, of Teaneck, New Jersey, and his four daughters were killed in a crash late Friday afternoon.
The driver was identified by WPIX as Alvin S. Hubbard Jr. of Maryland.

The operator of the Sable, a 24-year-old male from Bethlehem PA, was transported to a local area hospital where he was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.
Their mother was hospitalized with serious injuries.
Hubbard, 44, and a 30-year-old passenger were treated and released from a local hospital with minor injuries, police said.
She said the crash remained under investigation and that no charges had been filed against the pickup's driver. She said authorities had not determined whether he may have experienced a medical emergency.
"She's still under a lot of pain medicine", Audie's brother, Danny Trinidad, of Miami, told NJ Advance Media on Sunday.
Rolando, a classmate of Melissa's, said after Mass that he had known the twins for a long time.
"He was proud to be an American", Daniel says. "Melissa was in the honor society at school and just had a bright future ahead of her".
St. Anastasia Church marked the pew the Trinidad family sat in each week with flowers and candles.
The New York Post reports that after the crash, Ballocanag told her aunt: "Auntie, I'm alone".
"They're so full of love, I close my eyes and all I see are their smiles, every one of them". To be that mother though, it would be unreal to have that happen. "She knows. The thing that she doesn't know is that my brother and two of the girls are unrecognizable (at the morgue)". She is now is stable and alert condition, ABC News reported. None of them were wearing seat belts.
Audie was a postal carrier and his wife works as a nurse, the family said.
Parishioners remember the Trinidad family, killed in a fatal vehicle crash in Delaware.
As word spread, the community in Teaneck held a memorial on Saturday night, during which they swapped stories about the Trinidads.
"I don't know how my sister-in-law will take this", Daniel Trinidad said. "They touched our lives in many ways", said Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameeduddin.
