Jersey Barrier

Definition - What does Jersey Barrier mean?

A Jersey barrier is defined as precast concrete or plastic road barrier placed at medians to prevent vehicular interference into the other lane. While some of these barriers are put in place on a permanent basis to act as a median or divider for the road, temporary jersey barriers made of plastic are used as road blocks, road diversions or to mark construction sites such as those in trenchless technology.

Trenchlesspedia explains Jersey Barrier

Jersey barriers are easy to move because they come with grooves that a forklift can easily handle. The plastic barriers are easier to use but they are light weight, can topple in windy conditions and may not prevent serious damage in case of collision. Jersey barriers are a perfect way to mark off a repair site where trenchless technology is used. Jersey barriers help keep the pedestrians and oncoming traffic away from a construction site and help to keep construction crews safe.
