Steel Post, Downstream Anchorage for MGS

State MN
Description Text

We are looking for an all steel post downstream anchorage
for the MGS system.  We’ve looked for an all steel anchorage in other
States Standards (including Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Washington, and Texas)
 but found that their anchorages contain at least one wood post.  Is
there a tested MGS anchorage that contains all steel posts?


Thanks for your help.

To the best on my knowledge there are no steel post downstream anchor systems outside of proprietary end terminal designs. We have not developed such an anchorage for the MGS due to concerns for infringing on existing steel breakaway post patents.
