This report details the installation of a Ceva-Crete Expansion Joint system on an I-5 bridge in Olympia, Washington. The Ceva-Crete system employs an elastromeric 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.
