Task 210, FY 2006
Guidelines for the Selection of Cable Barrier Systems

Consultant: Texas A&M Research Foundation
Effective Date: August 25, 2005
Completion Date: Completed
Funds Allocated: $49,984

This study will produce a definitive set of recommendations for the selection of cable barrier systems (both generic designs and high-tension proprietary designs). The recommendations will be based on available data from evaluations by state DOTs and other credible sources. AASHTO's Technology Implementation Group (TIG) will also be working on cable median barriers. Information should be shared in both directions. The final report has been received and copies sent to the AASHTO Technical Committee on Roadside Safety.(NCHRP Staff C. W. Niessner)
