SALT LAKE CITY -- (KSTU) -- For months, Utah Highway Patrol and the Utah Department of Public Transportation have been looking for solutions to the wrong-way driving problem on state freeways. Now, they've come up with some solutions to try and help limit the problem.

"We're looking at adding some wrong-way signs," said Lieutenant Beau Mason, with UHP. "We're looking to lower the existing signs so that they're more visible too."

UDOT and UHP have also talked about adding long wrong way arrows on the highways themselves.

"Those arrows will be reflectors," explains Lt. Mason. "So they'll only catch the light in one direction, if you're driving the wrong way."

The most recent wrong-way driving situation happened early Monday morning around 1 a.m. when troopers got a call that someone was driving east in the Westbound lanes of I-80 heading near 5600 West.
