Dear Mr. Pasakarnis:

TThis letter is in response to your request for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to review modified roadside safety systems for eligibility for reimbursement under the Federal-aid highway program.

Name of system: TF1240, STF1240
Type of system: X-Footprint Portable Sign Stands
Testing conducted by: N/A
Date of request: June 26, 2013

Decision
The following devices are eligible, with details provided in the form and letter which are attached as an integral part of this letter:

Based on a review of the analysis submitted by the manufacturer certifying the devices described herein meet the crash test and evaluation criteria of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 350, the device is eligible for reimbursement under the Federal-aid highway program. Eligibility for reimbursement under the Federal-aid highway program does not establish approval or endorsement by the FHWA for any particular purpose or use. 

The FHWA, the Department of Transportation, and the United States Government do not endorse products or services and the issuance of a reimbursement eligibility letter is not an endorsement of any product or service.

Requirements
To be found eligible for Federal-aid funding, roadside safety devices should meet the crash test and evaluation criteria contained in the NCHRP Report 350 or the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH).

Description
The devices and supporting documentation are described in the attached form.

Summary and Standard Provisions
Therefore, the systems described and detailed in the attached form are eligible for reimbursement and may be installed under the range of conditions tested.
