Location:

Wayne County I-96

Problem / Challenge:

MDOT was in need of impact attenuators with high reusability and low maintenance.

Solution:

  • Trinity Highway Products/Carrier & Gable, Inc.
  • QuadGuard Elite
  • 36”, 8-Bay QuadGuard Elite (TL-3)

Results:

The Wayne County I-96 corridor is now an updated highway with the latest and greatest safety features.

  • The cylinders are reusable
  • The system meets NCHRP 350 Test Level 3 as a re-directive, non-gating crash cushion.
  • The Cylinders are made of high density polyethylene plastic and can with-stand multiple impacts before requiring replacement.
  • Works with both light cars and high center-of-gravity pickup trucks
“The QuadGuard Elite impact attenuator is the best answer for roadway safety, not only for the motoring public, but also for the people that maintain them.”
