Portable Traffic Barrier for Work ZonesAuthor/Presenter: Sicking, Dean L.; Ross, Hayes E., Jr.; Ivey, Don L.; Hirsch, T.J.
A portable, positive construction zone barrier is described. The barrier is suitable for use at sites where work will take as little as several hours. It is constructed from used cars and thrie-beam guardrail. Two full-scale vehicular crash tests of the portable barrier are described that demonstrate its adequacy in terms of impact performance. The barrier can be used in construction zones where conventional positive barriers have been impractical.
