Safety End Treatment

Safety End Treatment (SET) structures are a type of precast concrete retaining wall that is used along roadways to terminate stormwater piping that installed under roadways or driveways. The Safety End Treatment (SET) prevents soil erosion and help support the driveway. Very common in rural areas, driveways that cross an open ditch require SETs. Storm-water piping is placed below these roadways or driveways to create a continuous waterway. SETs are normally installed in pairs; at the INLET and the EXIT of this piping. As an important safety feature, the SET can be equipped with galvanized steel rails on top of the structure to provide a safer embankment so that an out-of-control oncoming vehicle could be deflected away from the concrete structure. The SET equipped with rails saves lives. Typically, the county or the state will determine the specifications for SET structures. Optional features for SETs include multiple pipes configurations, transverse or parallel safety rails, trash screens, and flap valves.

SETs can also be used in an effort to deflect moving objects in the event a vehicle runs off the road and into a ditch. As an important safety feature, the SET can be equipped with galvanized steel rails on top of the structure to provide a safer embankment so that an out-of-control oncoming vehicle could be deflected away from the concrete structure.
