Benefits

  • Steel reinforced concrete barriers have a minimum of 4,000 psi strength at time of shipment.
  • The average density of concrete barriers is about 3,500 to 3,700 pounds per cubic yard, which allows for unanchored portable barriers.

  • Due to availability, maintenance, effectiveness, and speed of installation, concrete barriers are extremely cost effective.
