Dear Mr. Anderson:

This is in response to your January 20, 2010, e-mail correspondence requesting the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) acceptance of your company’s Type III Barricade as a crashworthy traffic control device for use in work zones and elsewhere on the National Highway System. Accompanying your letter was the FHWA Office of Safety Design form and test report documentation of the relevant testing observed/conducted by Karco Engineering. 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 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 Geroge E. Rice, Jr.

for David A. Nicol, P.E.
Director, Office of Safety Design
