Texas barrier
 n.— «With the addition of bike paths and sidewalks, and no design refinements to the cookie-cutter railing (a “Texas barrier,” in highway engineers’ parlance), the new bridge is basically still just a 50-foot-wide swath of concrete.» —“Bland new bridge goes nowhere, designwise” by Whitney Gold Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee, Wisc.) Feb. 12, 2006.
