Our concrete pavement continuing education series led by Jerod Gross, PE, Leed® AP, continues this fall with a focus on best practices for jointing concrete pavements. It will include a discussion of joint type and layout, sawing practices, and proper construction for common pavement applications including roadways, roundabouts, parking lots, and shared use paths.
“Concrete goes through a volume change during hydration via shrinkage,” shares Gross. “With proper joint design and construction, shrinkage cracks are properly controlled and load is efficiently transferred throughout the pavement structure.”
As always, there’s no cost to attend, and all forums will be held during the lunch hour from noon to 1 pm, unless otherwise noted. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch or purchase one onsite for $7.
To allow for planning, please register by 5 pm two days before the date you’re planning to attend.
