Longitudinal Construction Joint Evaluation

This study will expand on the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's recent longitudinal joint study (which primarily looked at construction techniques) to review other material and roadway geometric issues which may be leading to the observed distresses along longitudinal joints. This project will be a synthesis of work that has already been completed both within Kentucky and across the nation. Best management practices will be documented to help address these issues, which should improve longitudinal joint performance and require less maintenance and early rehabilitation, which would allow for more efficient spending of available funding.
