MIDLAND, Va. – J.E. Hill Precast which manufactures, sells, and rents J-J Hooks concrete barriers, provided 11,000 linear feet of precast concrete security barriers for use in Tampa at the Super Bowl celebration.
One hundred (100) tractor trailer loads of temporary barrier were delivered from Leesburg, Florida, located approximately 80 miles from Tampa where Super Bowl XLIII was held. The barrier walls, installed in phases, completely encircled the stadium as mandated by the Homeland Security Department. The wall protected Raymond James Stadium, the displays outside the stadium and funneled pedestrian traffic through "chutes" for security checks. The rental contract for the concrete barriers was valued at over $250,000.
