RIGID PAVEMENT DESIGN. CONTRACTION JOINT SPACING
A study was made of the effect on riding quality of variation in contraction joint spacing and in skew angle of joints to the centerline on a section of Interstate 10 in Santa Rosa County (West Florida). Nine sections, each one half mile in length, were constructed in 1967, and included sections with standard 20-foot spacing, with two types of irregular spacing, with perpendicular transverse joints, and with a skew of approximately 2 feet in 12 feet. The study extended over a period of seven and one half years from completion of construction in June 1967.
