This guardrail system may be used on designated scenic byways and heritage tour routes if funding can be arranged.

The Steel-backed Timber Guardrail system consists of a timber rail with a steel plate attached to the back to increase its tensile strength.

The most desirable method of terminating a run of Steel-backed Timber Guardrail is with a buried terminal in a backslope. When this is not feasible, the system is limited to use on highways with a posted speed of 45 mph or less, and the barrier run is required to flare away from the traveled way and terminate in a berm.
