Dear Mr. Brady:

In your letter of April 25, 2008 that was received July 7, 2008 you requested the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) acceptance of the Type I barricade with a sign attached as a crashworthy traffic control device for use in work zones on the National Highway System (NHS). Accompanying your letter was the FHWA Office of Safety Design form that included a drawing and a detailed description of the barricade, a test report, and videos of the crash test. The drawing is enclosed with the acceptance form for the Type I barricade. You requested that we find this device acceptable for use on the NHS under the provisions of National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 350 "Recommended Procedures for the Safety Performance Evaluation of Highway Features.”

This letter is the acknowledgement of the FHWA's acceptance of your requests. The original completed forms have been modified by the addition of the FHWA acceptance letter number and the date of our review. The form will be posted on our Web site in the near future.

Sincerely yours,

Signature of David A. Nicol, P.E.
