We have had a request from a Florida precaster to fabricate 25' long sections of our Index No. 414 " Type K Temporary Concrete Barrier System that MWRSF helped develop.
We understand that there may be a concern for pocketing of the impacting vehicle if 12.5' and 25' units were intermixed in the free standing (unbolted) configuration. However would MWRSF have any other concerns for all 25' units in freestanding configuration or intermixed lengths in the bolted or staked down configurations.
Your input into our evaluations is always appreciated.

We do not see any significant issues with extending the Type K barrier to 25' segments. We do have a couple of things to keep in mind.
