MIDLAND, Va. – Concrete Safety Systems, which rents J-J Hooks concrete barriers, provided 1,320 linear feet of precast concrete security barrier to the National Park Service in Washington, D.C. for their Independence Day celebration.
The barrier was used to control vehicles and pedestrians and to provide security for people attending the event.
This is the fifth year that Concrete Safety Systems (CSS) was the sole provider of concrete barriers for the festivities. Barriers were placed in various locations around D.C. including the Mall, the Washington Monument and near the Capitol. Installation occurred on the night of June 30th to minimize disruption to traffic and tourists. The barrier was picked up after the celebration on July 7th.
