RE: [greenyes] Specs for plastic lumber for highway posts
John,

Contact the Maui Hawaii road folks. They had a big project in the 90's
where I think they replaced all the highway posts with post-consumer
plastic posts. I'd be curious to know if they are happy they did that.

Subject: [greenyes] Specs for plastic lumber for highway posts

Does anyone know of test data for plastic lumber for use as highway sign
or
crash barrier posts?

My Highway Commissioner said that the ACQ treated posts that they are
using
for signs are not working, as the aluminum signs and metal bolts are
rapidly
corroding -- to the point of the signs falling off the posts after six
months.

The Highway Department would like to try plastic lumber posts, but need
test
data -- especially "break away ability'' -- to show that they are
suitable.

Thanks much,
