(H10.6) Use for safety barrier curb or barrier curb (Type D) not ending over wing walls (two separate curbs used as a median or when wings are flared).

Measurement of safety barrier curb (Type D) is to the nearest linear foot for each structure, measured along the outside top of slab from end of slab to end of slab Measurement of median barrier curb transition (Type C) is to the nearest linear foot for each structure measured along the top of slab at centerline median from centerline sleeper slab to end of slab.

Concrete traffic barrier delineators will be considered completely covered by the contract unit price for Safety Median Barrier Curb (Type C) (Type D).
Below is additional guidance for using Part Note for Delineation Sheeting Requirements:
Bridges with two-lane, two-way traffic shall have retroreflective sheeting on both sides of the delineators. For two-lane, one-way traffic, retroreflective sheeting may be on one side only unless crossroad or entranceway traffic is just beyond exit to bridge and wrong way driving is to be discouraged with retroreflective sheeting on both sides of the delineators, (white and red in this case). "Delineators on bridges with two-lane, two-way traffic shall have retroreflective sheeting on both sides" may be modified, as required. For median barrier curbs, retroreflective sheeting should be used on both sides of the delineators where there is not more than four lanes divided.
On bridges with more than two lanes, retroreflective sheeting is not required on both sides of the delineators. The perception of a narrowing roadway at the bridge is of lesser consequence in terms of requiring guidance devices and does not warrant retroreflective sheeting on both sides of the delineators. "Delineators on bridges with two-lane, two-way traffic shall have retroreflective sheeting on both sides" may be removed at the discretion of the design team.
