    offers bridge guardrail products. About 37% of these are Traffic Barrier, 0% are Other Roadway Products. A wide variety of bridge guardrail options are available to you, such as project solution capability, warranty, and technique. Now is the time to build. Let’s dream big to stop the decades long trend of New Yorkers exiting our state. Now is the time to connect New York like never before. Now is the time to embrace the vision of the Governor, and begin the "Excelsior High-Speed Rail Corridor" in . One of the most common steel railing constructions in use today by State Departments of Transportation is a multi-element tubular rail system. Built alone or in combination with a concrete curb or low barrier wall, this post and beam rail type has strength and utility as a traffic barrier and a combination barrier.
