FHWA Home / Safety / Roadway Departure / Barrier Terminals & Crash Cushions

Barrier Terminals & Crash Cushions

This listing contains barrier terminals and crash cushions that have been issued an Eligibility Letter by FHWA. The FHWA's Federal-aid eligibility letters are provided as a service to the States and are not a requirement for roadside safety hardware to be eligible for Federal-aid reimbursement. As stated in our eligibility letters, "eligibility for reimbursement under the Federal-aid highway program does not establish approval, certification or endorsement of the device for any particular purpose or use." It is the responsibility of the agency who owns the facility to determine whether or not to use a particular hardware device and how to use it for the particular situation. Information on truck-mounted attenuators (TMAs) are also included in this listing. See AASHTO's Roadside Design Guide and AASHTO's Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware for guidance on selecting the appropriate Test Level (TL) based on traffic using the facility.

AASHTO Task Force 13 Guide for Barriers provides more information about barriers including Barrier Terminals and Crash Cushions.

FHWA announced its Safety Strategy regarding ET-Plus Guardrail End Terminals, after having assessed the safety performance.

  • Select "MASH" for crashworthy systems per the AASHTO Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware
  • Select "350" for crashworthy systems per NCHRP Report 350
  • Select "All" for both "MASH" and "350".

Recently posted Eligibility Letters are marked with an asterisk (*).
