Mobile Barriers MBT-1® drives down the road like a semi-truck and is used to increase work zone safety, minimize distractions to passing traffic, and quickly reopen roadways and restore normal traffic flows.
The mobility of the MBT-1® allows rapid work zone setup/removal and enables managers to reduce project duration, schedule around peak traffic hours, and minimize roadway congestion.
Example: Two Mobile Barriers MBT-1® trailers are being used on the Golden Gate Bridge to protect crews and equipment as new safety nets are installed...
The barriers are driven on each evening after traffic subsides and driven off before morning rush hour. There is minimal setup and breakdown. Traffic lanes are fully reopened throughout the day. It's what Mobile Barriers MBT-1® does best – enabling crews to work quickly and safely, and minimizing the impact on daily traffic.

"There are simply too many cars crashing into too many work zones, putting too many lives at risk."
"There’s no better
way to reduce work zone accidents and improve conditions for everyone than to safely complete the work as
quickly as possible and reopen the roadway to normal traffic flow."
