Median barriers are longitudinal barriers that separate opposing traffic on a divided highway and are designed to redirect vehicles striking either side of the barrier. Median barriers significantly reduce the severity of cross-median crashes, which are attributed to the relatively high speeds that are typical on divided highways.

These noise barriers, typically made of concrete and standing an average of 14 feet, turn the backs of neighborhoods into prison-like yards, and, on narrower stretches of road, encase drivers in roofless tunnels. Since the s, when the barriers first started sprouting, nearly three thousand linear miles have been erected. According to. U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration New Jersey Avenue, SE Washington, DC A safety barrier should only be built if the existing hazard cannot be removed (see Roadside Safety - Hazard Removal). The end points (terminals or end treatments) of barriers can be dangerous if not properly designed, constructed and maintained (see Related Images for examples of poor terminal treatments). This specification covers the requirements for road safety barrier systems used on state highways. This specification is currently under review.
