Improvement of Widening Joint Design and Construction Practices for Flexible Pavements

The objectives of this project are to: (1) determine the state-of-the-art practice and constructability challenges for placement and construction of joints required to widen lanes or extend asphalt pavement features; (2) Develop design and construction guidelines to address pavement performance issues when optimum practices are not possible; and (3) determine effective rehabilitation strategies for existing pavement widening joints that have deteriorated significantly. Design, construction and rehabilitation guidelines will be developed based on an extensive literature review, assessment of critical issues, and construction industry engagement.
