Maryland park to feature J-J Hooks barrier

March 9, 2007 | J-J Hooks

MIDLAND, Va. – Smith-Midland Corp., manufacturer of the J-J Hooks barrier connection system, announces its involvement in a project at Point Lookout State Park in St. Mary’s, Md.

Smith-Midland will provide 2,148 linear feet of precast concrete barrier featuring the patented J-J Hooks connection system, a contract worth more than $90,000. Barrier delivery and installation will take place over the next two to four months. The barrier will provide protection against the swelling of the Chesapeake Bay, to keep water from flooding or eroding the asphalt of the road.

The J-J Hooks barrier connection system has been crash tested to National Cooperative Highway Research Program 350 Standards. Self-aligning, identical ended J-J Hook connectors allow for quick, easy installation of the barrier. There is no loose hardware, permitting a single section to be easily removed without disturbing adjacent sections and eliminating the possibility of lost, stolen or damaged parts. This is important for easy emergency access and protection against tampering and vandalism. J-J Hooks can be used as a temporary or permanent barrier system.

Smith-Midland Corporation is a publicly traded company (OTC BB: SMID, SMIWC; Boston Stock Exchange: SMM, SMM/W). Smith-Midland develops, manufactures and sells a broad array of precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, transportation and utilities Industries.
