Said curbs and gutters shall be constructed of concrete, 3500 PSI strength at fourteen (14) days, and contain two (2) continuous one-half (½) inch diameter reinforcing rods in the gutter flag at locations crossing underground utility excavations or where otherwise directed by the Village Engineer. Expansion joints three quarter (3/4) inch thick shall be placed in the curb at each starting and ending of a radius and at intervals not exceeding two hundred fifty (250) feet and where otherwise directed by the Village Engineer. Tie bars shall be provided where curb and gutter is adjacent to rigid pavements.
