Mr. Christian Cummings
Acme Barricades, LC

Jacksonville, Florida 32221

Dear Mr. Cummings:

This is in response to your December 15, 2009, letter requesting the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) acceptance of your company’s Acme 1 VP Vertical Panel Barricade as a crashworthy traffic control device for use in work zones and elsewhere on the National Highway System (NHS). Accompanying your letter was the FHWA Office of Safety Design form indicating comparability with generic barricades detailed in FHWA Acceptance Letter WZ-54. You requested that we find this barricade acceptable for use with a single lightweight warning light (3 pounds or less, with batteries) 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 request. The original completed form has been modified by the addition of the FHWA acceptance letter number and the date of our review. The form, of which a copy is enclosed for reference, will be posted on our Web site in the near future.

 

Sincerely yours,

Signature of David A. Nicol, P.E.
