This project conducted a survey of Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and other state highway association (SHA) practices and identified the best practices toward incorporating them into guidelines for design and construction of transition areas that will enable TxDOT engineers and designers to avoid the inappropriate practices. The types of transitions that were addressed in this report covered a variety of concrete pavement combinations. Where possible, observed performances were documented based on survey results of many district practices and the findings of field visits. Based on these findings, improvements of various transition types were suggested to enhance the design standard for different transition types. Guidelines address the design of concrete pavements in transition areas with the joints and related details. The study of specific joint configurations associated with transitions was conducted with respect to stiffness of the joint, potential for permanent deformation, and slab restraint to translational movement at the joint. The 11 most frequently constructed types of concrete pavement transitions are introduced in this paper, and some of them have alternative designs as more options in the design guide....
