Highway safety experts agree that a solid barrier is the most important tool to prevent injury and death from potential crashes at highway repair projects.
While concrete barriers have been used for decades, the introduction of plastic jersey barriers changed the way things looked surprisingly fast.
Businesses prefer plastic barriers to concrete ones for two major reasons: lower cost and easier to move.
Plastic barriers are made from strong yet lightweight polyethylene, making them much more lightweight than traditional concrete barriers, while remaining effective to withstand collisions at speeds up to 60 mph.
The lighter design makes these barriers less expensive, less expensive to ship, and a perfect fit for highways, temporary project sites, and event venues.
Finally, transportation costs are also substantially lower due to the lighter design. These barriers are designed to be filled with water or sand only after they are placed in position. As plastic water-filled barriers do not even need to be anchored to the ground, they can be reused over and over again, thereby eliminating the need to purchase new barriers every so often.
