Improved Bridge Expansion Joints

This project will develop guidance on joint selection enumerating preferred joints for both new construction and maintenance. Identify joint performance tests that may be used to evaluate new joints after they are placed. Assist in the development of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) experimental projects incorporating bridge expansion joints that offer improved performance. Monitor the placement of experimental joints during construction.
