Combined in this report are descriptions of the progress of three individual experimental joint installations. Each of these includes a series of two or more experimental joints of special design, installed in concrete pavement in lieu of the conventional types employed in their respective construction projects.

These experimental joints included at one location a prefabricated neoprene seal; and, at two locations, aluminum load transfer devices, All installations were contraction joints only, Periodic inspections of these have been made and will be continued on two of the projects until adequate performance records are established. The condition of concrete about the joints with neoprene seals has reached the stage where there would be little value in additional observations.
