This final report details the field performance of a Ceva-Crete Expansion Joint system on an I-5 bridge in Olympia, Washington. The Ceva-Crete system employs an elastomeric concrete that is vulcanized in place to handle impact loads on the joint and a low density closed cell material (Evazote 50) that is epoxied to the steel nosing of the joint, to act as the seal.
The performance of the joint system was evaluated after a five-year period.
