BARRIER SYSTEMS AND THE NEW YORK EXPERIENCE

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE SUPPLEMENTS THE APPLICATION OF THEORY IN TESTING MEDIAN BARRIERS AND PROTECTIVE RAILINGS. IN A HEAVILY TRAVELED URBAN ARTERIAL WITH A NARROW MEDIAN, BOX BEAM BARRIER IS A VEXATION TO MAINTENANCE CREWS AND A QUESTIONABLE PROTECTION TO THE MOTORING PUBLIC. WHEN DAMAGED, CHAIN LINK FENCING IS A POTENTIAL HAZARD AND AN EYESORE. FOR URBAN ARTERIALS AS HEAVILY TRAVELED AS THOSE WITHIN THE CITY OF NEW YORK, THE CURVED FACE CONCRETE MEDIAN BARRIER APPEARS TO BE THE BEST CHOICE. /AUTHOR/
