Omaha’s Lindsay Corp. gets Golden opportunity
OMAHA, Neb. — Lindsay Corp., an Omaha irrigation systems company, recently installed a traffic barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco through the company’s Transportation Solutions division.
The innovative technology creates a barrier between lanes along the storied two-mile long bridge. The Golden Gate Highway & Transportation District purchased the barriers and a vehicle from Lindsay to move the barriers. The truck is called the Road Zipper for the way it acts like a zipper in shifting the barriers from various lanes.
Prior to this, the bridge only had 19-inch plastic tubes that separate divided lanes of traffic. The new system includes 3,500 individual barriers that are fastened together and filled with concrete.
