Shown is a plate cover joint (left) on the Highway 99 George Washington Memorial Bridge over Lake Union in Seattle and a concrete header joint (right) on southbound I-5 at the Duwamish River in Tukwila. These are similar to two types of expansion joints now used on the U.S. 2 bridge over the Pilchuck River in Snohomish County. (WSDOT photos)
