Traffic barriers are used to guide vehicles or pedestrians, or to block access to certain areas.  Compared to other traffic control products they command the respect of drivers more because of how they look.  Make sure the traffic barriers you purchase are stack able, because a lot of money can be saved in transportation costs.

Before buying a traffic barrier, make sure it is NCHRP-350 approved, meaning it meets the requirements and can take an impact at different levels.  Level 1 is 30MPH, level 2 is 45MPH and level 3 is 62.5MPH.  They are usually used to replace concrete medians, and are set up in long, long sections.
