connection to the respective barrier components;

at least one elongated stiffener beam adapted to
be received in one of the panel undulations
for providing increased rigidity in the
panel,

mounted in position to bridge such an opening to re-direct a vehicle striking the
deflection device, along the roadway barrier.

2. The device according to Claim 1, the panel including first and second parallel panel portions.

3. The device according to Claim 2, each panel portion having upper and lower outwardly-projecting undulations.

4. The device according to Claim 3, the panel portions being arranged with the lower undulation of the first panel portion in juxtaposed overlapping relation with the upper undulation of the second panel portion.

5. The device according to Claim 4, including two of such elongated stiffener beams, with one elongated stiffener beam being receivable in the upper undulation of the first panel, and the other elongated stiffener beam having receivable in the lower .undulation of the second panel.

6. A deflection device adapted for bridging the opening between spaced-apart, generally upright barrier components located on either side of an obstacle, water drain or the like, to redirect a vehicle departing a roadway, the deflection device comprising:

an upper, elongated corrugated panel having
upper and lower elongated, outwardly-,,
projecting undulations;

a lower, elongated, corrugated panel having
upper and lower elongated, outwardly- projecting undulations,

the lower and upper panels having each distal
end adapted for connection to a respective
barrier component with the upper undulation
of the lower panel in juxtaposed overlap- ping relation with the lower undulation of
the upper panel; and

at least one elongated stiffener beam adapted
for extending between the respective bar- rier components, said beam being disposed
in one of the panel undulations for provid- ing increased rigidity in the area of the
one undulation to inhibit collapse of the
one panel undulation when struck by a roadway vehicle.

7. The device according to claim 6, the upper and lower panels arranged with the overlapping portion of the panels defining a central region disposed generally along a ver-tical plane perpendicular to the roadway.

8. The device according to claim 7, the lower panel arranged to angle downwardly and away from the central region and the roadway such that a vehicle is prevented from ramping upwardly upon impact with the lower panel.

9. The device according to claim 7, the upper panel arranged to angle upwardly and away from the central region.

10. The device according to claim 6, including two stif-fener beams, one stiffener beam being receivable in the upper undulation of the upper panel and the other stiffener beam being receivable the lower undulation of the lower panel.

11. The device according to claim 6, the lower panel having a space along the lowermost margin for permitting roadway water run-off.

12. The device according to claim 6, the barrier components including upright, flat, generally imperforate bulkheads spaced on either side of the obstacle, the panels being transversely coupled to the bulkheads.

13. The device according to claim 12, the panels and beam extending beyond the bulkheads to more widely distribute the force of a vehicle striking the device.

14. The device according to claim 12, the barrier components including a flowable ballast material and the device having a sealing plug fitted in one of the panel undula-tions to prevent flow of the ballast material past the bulkhead.

15. An elongated roadway barrier having an opening therein and upright structure adjacent each side of the opening, and deflection means interconnecting the upright structure to provide a substantially continuous roadway barrier for redirecting roadway vehicular traffic which has departed the roadway, the deflection means comprising:

an elongated panel extending between the upright
structures; and

an elongated stiffener beam disposed between the
upright structures, the distal ends of the
beam extending past the upright structures
to inhibit catastrophic collapse of the
barrier in the vicinity of the upright
structures for deflecting straying roadway
vehicular traffic along the roadway barrier.

16. The deflection means according to Claim 15, the panel including first and second parallel panel portions.

17. The deflection means according to Claim 16, each panel portion having upper and lower outwardly-projecting undulations.

18. The deflection means according to Claim 17, the panel portions being arranged with the lower undulation of the first panel portion in juxtaposed overlapping relation with the upper undulation of the second panel portion to provide a reinforced region.

19. The deflection means according to Claim 18, including
*
an elongated stiffener beam received in the upper undulation of the first panel and an elongated stiffener beam received in the lower undulation of the second panel.

20. A roadway barrier section comprising:

a plurality of elongated, serially arranged
barrier components, each component having- a pair of spaced-apart elongated, generally upright side panels,

a ballast material disposed between the
side panels, and

an upright bulkhead transversely
secured between the side panels;

two of the barrier components being spaced from
a roadway obstacle, with respective
obstacle adjoining bulkheads spaced-apart
on either side of the obstacle; and

deflection means interconnecting the two barrier
components for deflecting vehicular traffic
departing the roadway in the region of the
obstacle,

the deflection means including a plurality of elongated horizontally- oriented, vertically spaced stiffener beams disposed between the
respective obstacle adjoining
bulkheads, the distal ends of the
beams extending horizontally
_ beyond the bulkheads for inhibiting catastrophic collapse of the
barrier components in the vicinity of the bulkheads and for
deflecting roadway vehicular traffic back towards the roadway.

21. A barrier section according to claim 20, including an elongated panel interconnecting the obstacle adjoining bulkheads, the panel being adjacent the beams.

22. A barrier section according to claim 21, the panel including upper and lower panel portions each having a plurality of undulations, one of the undulations of the upper panel portion being disposed in overlapping, juxta- posed relation with one of the undulations of the lower panel portion.

23. A barrier section according to claim 22, at least one of the beams being received in one of the panel undulations.

24. A barrier section according to claim 21, the ballast material being flowable, the obstacle adjoining bulkheads being substantially imperforate, and the panel having a plurality of outwardly-projecting undulations, the section including sealing means interfitted in one of the undulations adjacent the obstacle adjoining bulkheads for preventing flow of the ballast material therepast.

adjacent one of the panel portions, the beam and the region of
overlap cooperating to redirect a
vehicle departing the roadway and
striking the deflection means back
