Traffic Barricades

A safe alternative to concrete jersey barricades, our line of traffic rated barricades are accepted for use in high speed construction zones. See if a longitudinal channelizing device is better equipped to meet your requirements.

Traffic Barricades to Protect Drivers, Pedestrians, and Construction Crews

Our road barricades are designed to protect drivers, pedestrians, and road construction crews by creating channels of clear delineation. The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) states that uniformity promotes respect and our Longitudinal Channelizing Devices (LCD) do just that! We have two different traffic safety barricades for use on the road, each with unique benefits for different applications. Both the MB42x72 JSS LCD and the MB42x45 LCD barricades are federally accepted as Longitudinal Channeling Devices (LCDs) and suitable for high speed work zones. 

Depending on how much protection is needed, our traffic barricades can either form an interlocking wall or be spaced individually to supplement cones and drums. All of our traffic control barricades can be ballasted with water and accessorized with safety lights and reflective sheeting. Our jersey shaped traffic barricade can also be outfitted with steel fence panels, creating an even taller barrier to entry.

Plastic Traffic Barricades

Our traffic barricades are a safer alternative to concrete in many situations. Only two work zone conditions require the use of concrete barriers. The first is when it is less dangerous for vehicle occupants to impact the concrete barrier than to collide with a hazard behind the barrier, and the second is to prevent an errant vehicle from penetrating a zone where workers are at risk. Our brightly colored plastic traffic barricades provide more visibility to drivers and are actually safer in a crash than concrete barriers. They are also easier to deploy since most models can be set up by one person and then ballasted with water. 

Widely-spaced folding barricades, drums, and cones can be confusing, and this variation can increase reaction time, leading cars or pedestrians to enter hazardous areas. Our traffic control barriers offer clear and positive guidance, essential in many work zones. The MUTCD also says that a uniform treatment creates a uniform response. A continuous wall is a bigger deterrent and the height and bright visibility is easier to recognize at night or in bad weather.

Use this study on determining the lateral deflections of plastic water-filled barriers to properly select and install a PWB system for different site and traffic conditions.
