This report describes a new type bridge deck expansion joint which was recently installed on a Rte 95 interchange bridge (Ramp N) at Petersburg. Details of the installation of the ON-FLEX joint are given and recommendations concerning possible modifications to the general installation technique are offered. It is suggested that these recommendations be implemented on a trial basis for one of the joint installations that are to be included on several other bridges that have an experimental features project approved for evaluation purposes.
