Dear Mr. Schulz:

In your letter of May 22, 2009, you requested the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) acceptance of the FG300 Turnpike Curb as a crashworthy traffic control device for use on the National Highway System (NHS). You requested acceptance of the 2.25 inch high modular curb system for use with already accepted FG300 delineator posts. Your request for acceptance is based on successful impact testing conducted by Texas Transportation Institute's accredited crash testing facility. Accompanying your letter was the FHWA Office of Safety Design forms that included a drawing of the Turnpike Curb and a video of the impact testing. A drawing of the Turnpike Curb is enclosed for reference. You requested that we find the Turnpike Curb acceptable for use as a Test Level 3 device on the NHS under the provisions of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 350 "Recommended Procedures for the Safety Performance Evaluation of Highway Features".

This letter acknowledges FHWA's acceptance of your request. 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 George E. Rice, Jr
