Best Practices of Concrete Pavement Transition Design and ...

CONCRETE PAVEMENT JOINTS In a concrete pavement system, transition area design often evolves around the placement and detailing of joints that are placed in the pavement to control cracking and to facilitate construction. Joints divide the pavement into practical construction increments, delineate traffic lanes, and accommodate slab movements.
