Temporary Barrier Guidance ManualAbstract:
Temporary barrier is effective in providing positive separation between traffic and work areas. It is primarily used for protecting vehicles from severe hazards (e.g. drop -offs, embankments, fixed objects), protecting workers from errant vehicles, and separating opposing directions of traffic in certain temporary traffic control applications. When used appropriately, temporary barrier has the potential to reduce the severity of crashes. This document provides detailed guidance on the application of temporary barriers.
