This concrete barrier is a 36″ or 42″ concrete median traffic barrier designed with a single slope used to separate lanes of traffic. It has been developed for use as either a permanent concrete median barrier or as a temporary barrier. The primary advantage is that the pavement adjacent to it can be overlaid several times without changing the performance of the barrier. This should help to reduce the maintenance costs associated with its use.
Compared to more complex shapes, this barrier’s performance is not as affected by changes in the height of the roadbed during repaving.
This barrier has performed similarly in crash tests to the F-Shape Concrete Barrier.
