Crash Cushion - Impact Attenuators
Harrisburg, PA United States | 2006
The Interstate 485 project in Charlotte began in 1988, twenty-seven years before its completion in 2015. The last 5.7 mile segment was completed on June 5, 2015. The last segment connects a 67 mile circle around the city of Charlotte. The new segment of road is also expected to expand the area by bringing new construction and businesses to the area.
Hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) was specified in the guardrail portion for it maintenance free service life of over 50+ years. With the amount of traffic expected to travel the new segment, it is important for the guardrail to be free of corrosion and rust for many years to come.
Since it has taken the City of Charlotte 27 years to complete this belt-line project, the service life of materials specified during the design phases of the road project become that much more important. With the city of Charlotte continuing to expand, it is important to consider the use of HDG on all future projects when applicable.
