FHWA issues Eligibility Letter for J-J Hooks MASH Free-Standing Design
Easi-Set Worldwide product announcement. On February 9, 2018, The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued Federal-Aid Eligibility Letter B300 for the J-J Hooks free-standing MASH TL3 highway safety barrier design. Previously FHWA had issued Letter of Eligibility B52B for the J-J Hooks MASH bolted to concrete barriers and B52C for the J-J Hooks MASH pinned to asphalt barriers.
With the issuance of this Eligibility Letter J-J Hooks now provide State DOTs with a full suite of free-standing and restrained (bolted or pinned) MASH (Manual of Safety Hardware) TL3-tested designs. Their availability in the marketplace is nearly two years ahead of the “sunset” date requirement contained in the January 7, 2016 AASHTO/FHWA Joint Implementation Agreement for MASH.
Currently, more than 13,000,000 linear feet of J-J Hooks temporary precast concrete barrier have been produced and installed worldwide. All J-J Hooks barrier designs utilize the same J-Hook connection system which provides the industry’s fastest installation and removal capability, has integral self-aligning connection guides, and requires no loose hardware.
