The SCI collapsing attenuator barrier can be used over and over...
I was on the impression that Caltrans delay to fix the attenuator was that some parts of the absorption mechanism have to be replaced.
Putting temporary barrels using a Clarklift would have not been difficult and would have been be a good way to mitigate the danger.
Putting two cones and a road sign (which was not stabilized with some sand bags and had collapsed on the floor) was useless.
IMO, repairing the attenuator, or installing a quick protection should have been a top priority.
