Largest Barrier Order in Company History Adds 7 Miles of Rental Barrier

FAM Construction, LLC (a Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers partnership) originally awarded Smith-Midland the contract to supply up to 245,000 linear feet of J-J Hooks precast concrete safety barrier for the I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project in Northern Virginia.

FAM has now added an additional 36,000+ linear feet of MASH rated rental safety barrier through Smith-Midland’s Concrete Safety System’s division. The barrier will be installed for an initial period of 18 months. Services include delivery, installation and return.

The 22.5 mile long I-66 project will provide two express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to Route 29 in Gainesville and space in the median reserved for future transit options. In addition, the project consists of 4,000 park-n-ride spaces, safety and operational improvements at key interchanges, and bicycle and pedestrian upgrades.
