broom not less than 450 mm (18 inches) wide. Pull the broom gently over the surface of the pavement from edge to edge. Brooming shall be transverse to the line of traffic and so executed that the corrugations thus produced will be uniform in character and width, and not more than 3 mm (118 inch) in depth. Carefully finish the edge of the pavement along forms and at the joints with an edging tool. The brooming shall eliminate the flat surface left by the surface face of the edger.
The finish surfaces of new and existing abutting pavements shall coincide at their juncture.
CONCRETE FINISHING EQUIPMENT PADS
After the surface has been struck off and screed to the proper elevation, give it a smooth dense float finish, free from depressions or irregularities.
Carefully finish all slab edges with an edger having a radius as shown in the Drawings.
After removing the forms, rub the faces of the pad with a wood or concrete rubbing block and water until blemishes, form marks, and tool marks have been removed. The finish surface of the pad shall not vary more than 3 mm (118 inch) when tested with a 3000 mm (1 0 foot) straightedge.
Correct irregularities exceeding the above.
JOINTS - GENERAL
Place joints, where shown, confonning to the details as shown, and perpendicular to the finished grade of the concrete surface.
Joints shall be straight and continuous from edge to edge of the pavement.
Cut joints to depth as shown with a grooving tool or jointer of a radius as shown or by sawing with a blade producing the required width and depth.
Finish edges of all joints with an edging tool having the radius as shown. Score pedestrian pavement with a standard grooving tool or jointer.
