Flight Crew Human Performance
I called philadelphia at 800-number and got WX (I told him ATIS unavailable) from controller or facility person. I told him of my intention to take off on runway 16. I was not told that runway 16 was closed. Runway was lit and barriers on runway were not. I received a call from the FSDO and he sent an agent to inspect my aircraft. They claimed my aircraft struck a barrier; but found no damage on my aircraft. They claim there was a tire mark on a barrier. There was no mark(south) on my tire or any damage to my aircraft. Consider the following: 1) barriers should be lit and placed at hold area before getting on runway. 2) philadelphia facility should give full ATIS when asked for WX and when I told person that I could not get the ATIS on the ground.
