CONCRETE INFORMATION. DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF JOINTS FOR CONCRETE STREETS

This publication presents the principles of design and construction of joints for concrete streets. Joints in concrete street pavements control cracking, divide the pavement into convenient working areas, provide adequate load transfer, and provide lane delineation. Proper jointing keeps the concrete pavement in smooth riding condition for its full design life at a low annual cost. The design and construction of joints for an individual project should use the principles presented in this publication and the performance of local street pavements subjected to similar traffic and environmental conditions.
