(Martinsburg, W.Va.) -- State police in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia are planning to step up enforcement on Interstate 81 following three double-fatality wrecks in the past month, including one in the midstate.

Maryland State Police Lieutenant Michael Fluharty says the goal is to reduce wrecks and aggressive driving on I-81.

Troopers in the three states will conduct joint enforcement efforts during the spring and summer.

The operations won't be announced. They will target specific areas in all three states.

One of the double-fatality wrecks occurred March 11th near Williamsport, Maryland. Another occurred March 26 near Falling Waters, West Virginia. The third wreck occurred last week in Carlisle.
