They do this for rush hour. You would be amazed at how much one extra lane helps

I didn't read a title and thought it was an RV drifting in the wrong lane and the gif glitched the barriers.

While it is awesome to see, shouldn't there be a prior warning to incoming traffic lane? Like 100 meters before the "lane changer" actual position?

If for some unexpected reason they need to move a barrier during rush hour, this is how it's done, without prior warning.
User avatar #5 to #4 - enemyoftrn (02/13/2014) [-]
With no warning or caution sign? That's quite dangerous.

Not really, it's impossible to follow behind one of these trucks, and if you're in front of one you're in the clear.
User avatar #7 to #6 - enemyoftrn (02/13/2014) [-]
Wait, did people use this lane as a fast lane? When do they know when to slow down if there's a machine like that changing the lane from 3 to 2?
User avatar #9 to #7 - alecbaldwinning (02/13/2014) [-]
From the perspective of the driver's behind the truck, the road is only ever 2 lanes, because ever since they turned onto that road, the 3rd lane was blocked. As they continue ahead, they pass by the slower truck so they only ever see the road open up to 3 lanes.

Look at the direction of the traffic. The lanes always go from 2 to 3 never 3 to 2

I think you are missing the point of my argument.

I passed by a barrier being moved like this many times over the past summer, so with my subpar paint skills I will attempt to explain.

Referring to the lanes going "down" They pass the truck with no problem, it was 2 lanes before, they pass the truck, now it's three. For the lanes going "up" there generally is a warning and a sign back at the beginning of where the barriers start, but in this drawing, and in the .gif, that is out of frame.

So, it was moving against the oncoming traffic. Ah, that was the trick. Thank you. Good sir.

They don't need a warning cause the truck doesn't face oncoming traffic. It turns a same-direction lane into a new Oncoming traffic lane as it goes. Anyone that would hit the lane changer would have to be going the wrong direction, or cross the median somehow.
#35 to #3 - Rascal (02/14/2014) [-]
No, think about it.... the truck essentially makes its own lane.... nobody can follow it behind; nor can anyone coming the other way be in that lane because there is a barrier. The only issue is traffic ahead of the truck.
User avatar #14 to #3 - pawnman (02/13/2014) [-]
only if he was moving in the other direction. In this direction both sides of traffic are against the barrier and not in the lane that has the barrier being moved into.

WHY DONT WE HAVE THESE IN CALIFORNIA? They do it all by this claw machine that takes them a few days to do.

... how often do they need to be moved..?
User avatar #30 to #29 - alecbaldwinning (02/14/2014) [-]
Constructions begins, they need to be shipped from whatever giant warehouse they're stored at and then put on the highway, sometimes for stretches miles at a time. Depending on the work, they'll all need to be moved over one lane every few days to few weeks until it times to pick them all back up and move them back into storage.
