3.0 OVERVIEW OF HIGH TENSION CABLE BARRIER Generic non-tensioned cable barrier has been used as median and roadside barrier since the 1930s. HTCB has supplanted the generic cable barrier as a median barrier since the 1980s. HTCB has three or four 19 mm 3/4 inch, 3x 7 galvanized steel cables (comprised of 3 x 7
Cable barrier in the news. You may have heard about high tension cable barrier in the news recently. HTCB has proven to be one of the most effective tools available to transportation engineers for reducing fatal and life-changing cross-median crashes. Here's some more in-depth background: MnDOT implemented a Toward Zero Deaths Program in 2003. This program is a partnership between the Minnesota State Patrol, the Minnesota Department of Health and MnDOT
