Traffic Barricade Buying Guide

Jersey Barriers are modular barriers commonly used along traffic-ways and roadwork sites. Plastic Jersey Barriers are designed to be water or sand-fillable (or "ballast-able") so that the jersey barrier modules can be easily transported and moved as needed, then filled on-site to increase stability. These plastic jersey barriers are available in high-visibility colors and can be connected into a continuous barrier to secure the perimeter around construction zones, road work sites, and airports to help keep workers or pedestrians safe from traffic. Water filled and sand filled barriers provide more site protection than lighter crowd control methods while still maintaining some portability. Our collection includes a variety of features such as solar powered light add-ons, reflective tape, and more.

About Jersey Barriers

Jersey Barriers provide portable, durable and high visibility protection for construction zones, road work sites, airports, and anywhere else where workers, pedestrians, vehicles, and equipment cross paths. Our selection has plastic jersey barriers for easy transport and quick deployment, and concrete jersey barriers for a more permanent and durable traffic control solution. Plastic barriers can be reinforced by connecting them or adding ballast with water or sand.  Water filled and sand filled barriers provide more site protection than lighter crowd control methods like steel barricades.  Add increased, sustainable visibility with solar powered light addons and reflective tape.

In addition, Crowd Control Warehouse offers a large variety of jersey barriers for all occasions. Our barriers come in a variety of colors, materials, and sizes, and with additional fencing options. This allows you to select the perfect jersey barrier for your exact need or location.

  • Portable
  • Versatile

Common Use Cases

Construction Zones

Jersey barriers are beneficial in construction zones for many reasons. They are a highly effective safety measure and can be strategically placed to protect both construction workers and passing motorists from potential hazards. By delineating work areas and creating a physical barrier, jersey barriers help minimize the risk of accidents, particularly in high-traffic zones. They are instrumental in redirecting vehicle flow, guiding traffic safely around construction sites, and preventing vehicles from inadvertently entering dangerous areas.


Jersey barriers play an important role in enhancing security and efficient operations at airports. These versatile tools are instrumental in various aspects of airport management. They can be used to define clear boundaries, separating secure and non-secure areas to control access and safeguard passengers and personnel.

Public Events

Utilizing jersey barriers for public events helps promote safety, security, and efficient crowd control. Whether it's a music festival, sporting event, parade, or any large gathering, jersey barriers serve multiple essential functions. They help establish well-defined perimeters, keeping attendees within designated areas and preventing unauthorized access to off-limit areas. Additionally, jersey barriers aid in guiding foot traffic, creating organized queues and directing the flow of people.

Road Medians

Using jersey barriers for median division is a crucial aspect of road safety and traffic management. Median barriers, such as concrete jersey barriers or guardrails, serve as a protective buffer between opposing lanes of traffic, preventing head-on collisions and ensuring the safety of drivers and passengers.
