The concrete curb approaches and the gutter cannot be poured until the concrete forms have been removed from the concrete in the sidewalk and curb. Construction expansion joints should be cut in the concrete sidewalk every five feet, making five-foot squares; in the gutter they should be spaced not more than ten feet apart. One-quarter inch expansion joints should be cut into the sidewalk every twenty-five feet; in the gutter every twenty feet, and in the concrete curb every fifty feet. Expansion joints should be placed at one end of the curb approach slab and should separate the curb from the gutter. Cutting will prevent the concrete curb from tipping. Plan and cross-section of sidewalk, curb, and gutter. The concrete should be mixed in proportions of 1: 21/2:4, being 1 part portland cement, 21 parts of sand, and 4 parts of crushed stone and gravel, graded in size from 3/4 inch to 1 inch. The surface of the concrete walk, curb approach, and gutter should be finished with a wood float only. A concrete edging tool should be used to round the curb edges. The curb can be rubbed with an abrasive stone to remove concrete form marks and improve its appearance. Curing should take at least a week for sidewalk; curb approach and curb, and two weeks for the gutter.

The fact that the face of the concrete curb slopes back proves most satisfactory in that it does not scrape or injure tires of cars parked close to the curb. Concrete forms are usually used to shape curbs; however, it has often proved advisable to use a very stiff or dry mixture and shape the concrete curb to contour by the use of special concrete forms of screeds and trowels. Concrete forms are simple to build and set. We use a core drill and a diamond core drill bit to drill perfectly round holes in concrete surfaces and structures. A core hole is drilled in the top of the curb through which the concrete may be deposited and spaded. The concrete forms should be removed as soon as the concrete is hard enough, and the surface should be entirely gone over, all holes filled and worked with a cement trowel to give the curb a uniform appearance. The concrete should be 1:2: 3, being 1 part of portland cement, 2 parts of sand, and 4 parts of gravel or crushed stone graded in size from 4 inch to 1 inch.
