Concrete Barrier Walls are more cost-effective than alternative types of barriers. Other barrier types must be replaced whenever an impact occurs (even low-energy impacts), because they may not perform properly in subsequent impacts. Considerable time and cost must be spent maintaining other barrier types, endangering motorists and workers during each repair.
The NCHRP 350 TL3 tested J-J Hooks Concrete Barrier is approved in 47 states territories and provinces.
Greatly improved safety for workers in construction work zones
Concrete highway barriers are the preferred temporary barrier
Provide a high level of containment
Relatively inexpensive compared to other barriers
Can be free-standing, bolted, or pinned
The F-Shape is more commonly used for permanent concrete barriers. However, a few states use this shape for portable concrete barriers and it is under consideration by several others.
The F-Shape is a later generation of the safety shape that is intended to further limit vehicle damage. The lower sloped face redirects vehicles under low-impact conditions. During moderate to severe impacts, some energy is dissipated when the vehicle is lifted off the pavement. The F-Shape reduces this lift, which promotes better vehicle stability while maintaining vehicle redirection. In crash tests, the F-Shape has proven to be more successful in preventing rollover of smaller vehicles. The F-Shape has been found to be more effective overall than the Jersey Shape barrier in some instances.
