Dear Mr. Zimar:

This is in response to your October 1, letter requesting the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) acceptance of the renumbering of your company’s sign stands as crashworthy traffic control devices for use in work zones and elsewhere on the National Highway System (NHS).

The sign stand model numbers are changing from X-841 and X-842 to X-101 and X-102, respectively. The X-841 stand was accepted in our letter WZ-59 and the X-842 stand was accepted in our letter WZ-78A.

You requested that we find these stands 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 */
