Temporary Barrier System


The current MwRSF F-shape temporary concrete barrier system has been tested successfully in both freestanding and tied-down applications. In addition, a transition has been developed between the temporary barriers and rigid concrete barriers for use in roadside applications. Combining these developments makes the concrete temporary barrier system the most complete temporary barrier system available to date. The system and its many variations were developed and tested with funding from the Midwest States Pooled Fund Program and the Florida Department of Tranportation.
