Temporary Barrirer-Reinforcement

Question
State WI
Description Text A temporary barrier manufacturer is indicating that they can bend the 6A2 bar as one piece. They want to replace the two 6A2 near the barrier anchor holes with one bent bar. Knowing how important that reinforcement is for holding a barrier in place when anchor, I don’t know if it is a good idea.

Response
Response We don't believe that it would be an issue to do the two "U"-shaped bars as a single piece as shown in the attached schematic. We would recommend that the overlap of the single piece bar be at least 10" in order to provide similar development on the non-continuous side as the previous two piece configuration.
