Why Do You Need Traffic Barriers

Traffic barriers help keep vehicles within their roadway and prevent them from colliding with dangerous obstacles such as sign supports, boulders, and other materials present during road construction. Road barriers can also help indicate that there is ongoing construction work on the area.

Traffic barriers are generally used to initiate traffic control and safety for vehicles, pedestrians, construction workers that are on the site, as well as the general public. Road barriers vary depending on the scale of the project and the amount of traffic that occurs around the site.

There are four types of traffic barriers that are commonly used by traffic control contractors: 1. Traditional Steel/Plastic Barriers: Also known as pedestrian barriers, these types of traffic barriers are made to guide and protect pedestrians in any area where they may be at risk from hazards. This type of barrier can either be made of plastic or steel, depending on the location and the scale of the project. Both plastic and steel barriers are relatively light-weight, which makes redeployment fast, efficient and convenient. 2. Longitudinal Channelizing Devices: Commonly referred to as LCD, this type of traffic barrier is used to help address work zone safety by keeping vehicles and pedestrians from entering work areas. This type of barrier is an essential tool used to separate traffic from the work area and can increase both construction workers’ safety and the general public. 3. Concrete Barriers: Concrete barriers are one of the most common types of traffic barriers used in a roadside project. While this type of barrier is known to be very durable and robust, they also have a number of potential challenges. For example, concrete barriers are heavy and are not portable. They also require extensive installation time and effort, which can cause delay prior to the start of the project. 4. Other Barrier Types: Drums and cones are also considered traffic barriers. However, most professionals do not recommend using these types of barriers. It’s best to ask your contractor for the best type of barrier for your project.

In some cases, traffic billboards are also used to help inform both motorists and pedestrians of the ongoing road project. These are commonly made out of highly visible material and lights for motorists and pedestrians to see it at night. Road billboards are essential, naturally light-weight and require a minimal amount of time and effort when installing.
