Jersey Barriers

(1/2) > >>

What's behind their name? I figured it was because they started in New Jersey, but I wonder why the name caught on to all of them. Also, what states use them?

Yeah, it's mainly due to the fact that they were developed in New Jersey under research for NJDOT.  Apparently, there are several slightly-modified variants for places like California, Texas, and the UK.

Jersey Barriers are pretty widespread at this point.  I wouldn't expect that there's any U.S. state not using them to at least a small extent.

We even have them for a few miles in Wyoming, so I can't imagine there's any state without them

Maybe Alaska?

Yep, they have Jersey barriers in Alaska.
