Strike-Off Letter 495-15-05 Guide Rail End Treatment Inspection Process

The intent of this Strike-Off Letter is to establish an updated process for the inspection and data management of guide rail end treatments.
In 2005, the FHWA determined that ET-Plus guard rail end terminal met the relevant crash test criteria and therefore was eligible for Federal-aid highway funding. In the Fall of 2014, a jury issued a verdict that Trinity made a false or fraudulent claim to FHWA when it sought the eligibility determination for the ET-Plus. Additionally, a number of parties have raised concerns about the in-service performance of the ET-Plus and the potential variability in the dimensions of installed units of the ET-Plus. As a result, FHWA is undertaking a number of efforts to assess these issues. The FHWA continues to evaluate and study these end treatments, but to date there are no findings or test results to indicate that they are unsafe.

Questions continue to arise regarding this issue. Accordingly, it is appropriate to define PennDOT’s Standard of Care regarding guide rail inspection:

1. Publication 23, Maintenance Manual, Section 11.5 states that “inspections should be made at least twice a year, in the spring after the snow season is over, and in the fall prior to the snow season. These inspections should be concerned with alignment, appearance and general condition. Any sections in need of repairs or maintenance must be noted and scheduled for repair by the County Manager.”

Also stated, “it is important that damaged guide rail systems in need of repair are done so in a timely manner to minimize risk exposure to the department and our motorists. Particular emphasis is to be placed on completing necessary springtime guide rail system repairs following the winter maintenance season, especially those repairs that could not physically be made over the winter months. By May 20th all identified springtime repairs are to be completed on the interstate and expressway highways.”

2. Through the Systematic Techniques to Analyze and Manage Pennsylvania’s Pavements (STAMPP) program, existing guide rail is currently surveyed on a four year cycle. With regard to end treatments, the survey indicates whether or not there has been damage. End treatment repairs/upgrades/replacements are generally addressed through construction contracts or through District/County guide rail contracts.

Both Trinity Industries and PennDOT conducted surveys of ET-Plus end treatments in the Fall of 2014. These surveys uncovered a need to review end treatment inspection and maintenance policies, and consider changes.

After consideration of various options, the STAMPP program will continue to be the process for cataloging and surveying the end treatments for damage and maintenance needs. The semi-annual inspections described in the Maintenance Manual will also continue.

However, in light of the determined need for improved survey data, the STAMPP survey process will be enhanced by including the attached General End Treatment Inspection Checklist in Publication 33 (Shoulder and Guide Rail Condition Survey Field Manual). Any items listed on the checklist, noted as “no” from the inspection will be defined as damaged.

STAMPP data undergoes Quality Assurance review and is stored in the Roadway Management System (RMS). Damaged guide rail end treatment data can be viewed and reported. To that end, the Bureau of Maintenance and Operations, Asset Management Division, will provide year end reports to identify all locations of damaged end treatments, along with the type and date surveyed.

It is also recommended to identify guide rail needs as part of the Scoping Field View Process for highway construction projects. The attached inspection check list may be used to document conditions and locations to be addressed, and can be attached to Field View minutes.

The updated STAMPP survey process will be incorporated into the next edition of Pub. 33, and will be implemented for the 2016 surveys.

Comments or questions concerning this letter may be directed to J. Michael Long, PE, Chief, Asset Management Division, by calling 717-787-6899.
