Dear Mr. Zimar:

This is in response to your letter requesting the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) acceptance of the renumbering of one of your company’s sign stands as a crashworthy traffic control device for use in work zones and elsewhere on the National Highway System (NHS).

The new stand model numbers (for manufacturing and internal tracking purposes) are to be 6770-C-902-S-KLSH and 6770-C-L-KLSH. These stands were only cosmetically changed from your standard model C-902 which was included in FHWA Acceptance Letters WZ-07, WZ-13, and WZ-56. The model number under which this stand will be marketed is SS-2002.

You requested that we find this stand 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 standard provisions and limitations detailed in our original letters of acceptance will continue to apply.

 

Sincerely yours,

/* Signature of Michael S. Griffith */
