A REPORT ON CONTINUITY BETWEEN REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT AND A CONTINUOUS SLAB BRIDGE

THE TRANSITION BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY PAVEMENT AND BRIDGE DECK HAS LONG BEEN ONE OF THE MAJOR SOURCES OF PROBLEMS CONCERNING THE PERFORMANCE AND MAINTENANCE OF THE HIGHWAY SYSTEM AS A WHOLE. IN 1963, CONSTRUCTION WAS BEGUN ON A PROJECT WHERE A CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT, BRIDGE ABUTMENT, AND CONTINUOUS SLAB BRIDGE WERE ALL TIED TOGETHER IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN ROADWAY CONTINUITY. THIS REPORT COVERS OBSERVATIONS MADE IN THE TWO YEAR PERIOD FOLLOWING COMPLETION OF THIS SYSTEM. THE SUCCESS OF THIS SYSTEM GIVES PROMISE THAT IMPROVEMENTS CAN BE MADE IN THIS AREA OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION. /AUTHOR/
