What is INDOT Barrier Wall?

INDOT barrier walls include all types of precast concrete construction barriers that have been approved by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) for highway, bridge, and roadway projects. INDOT barrier walls are used to direct traffic, reduce speeds within construction zones, and shield motorists, pedestrians, and workers from potential dangers. INDOT barriers are usually constructed from poured concrete reinforced with steel, and they can be either temporary or permanent. For the purpose of this blog, we are discussing temporary precast INDOT barrier walls, because they can be resold and purchased after each project!

How Do INDOT Barrier Walls Prevent Accidents?

INDOT barrier walls prevent cars from crossing over a median into oncoming traffic, over ledges, or into pedestrian or construction zones. In shallow-angle hits, a car’s tires will ride up the sloped face of the barrier, which forces the car to pivot away from oncoming traffic and back into its original direction. This type of hit reduced damage to both the vehicle and the barrier. In more direct hits, the barrier will physically stop the car from passing the barrier through blunt force.

What are INDOT Barrier Walls Made Of?

INDOT barrier walls are made of poured concrete that is reinforced with embedded steel rebar. The steel reinforcements protrude from each end of the barrier, allowing separate segments to link together. INDOT barrier wall is durable and can be used on projects for many years, allowing its resale between projects.

What are the INDOT Barrier Wall Specifications?

INDOT outlines a few specifications that apply to all barriers in their state.

  1. The dimensions of the lifting slots of every barrier are subject to adjustment as necessary to accommodate handling equipment.

  1. Maximum barrier taper rate flares for lane closures will change depending on the speed of the construction zone. For example, in a 50 mph speed zone, the taper flare rate is 14:1, but in a 40 mph speed zone, the flare rate is 11:1.

  1. In some instances, site conditions prohibit the use of the state’s specified flare rates, due to hazards or other blockages. In these cases, the flare rates may range from 10:1 to 6:1.
