Low Profile Traffic Curb (GD-3 - GD-11)

These drawings provide the necessary details to construct a Low Profile Barrier Curb. This curb shape has been successfully crash-tested and may be used for raised medians where the posted speed is 45 mph or less. The barrier shape redirects impacting vehicles and reduces the possibility of crossover accidents.

This system may be a more effective option than conventional traffic curb medians when access across the median is undesireable. The raised area can be either paved or used as a planting area. On state highways, even within the corporate limits of a city, the Department of Transportation has jurisdiction over medians, so some restrictions on foliage type and size may be expected.

At present, no manufacturers are listed who have produced the precast units in these drawings. This will change as usage increases.
