14.2.2 Strip Seal Expansion Joints [14.5.3.2] f) Based on the point of fixity of each segment, the maximum movements can be determined for the design of joints and bearings. Minnesota bridges with parapet type abutments typically have strip seal expansion joints at the abutments to isolate superstructure movements from the abutments.

Improved Bridge Joint Materials and Design Details

Expansion joints fall into two categories — open joints and closed joints. Open joints contain gaps that facilitate the passage of water and debris runoff through bridge joints. Flexible or stiff troughs are generally installed beneath open joints to direct runoff away from bridge elements. Closed joints produce a watertight seal that inhibits
