AbstractAn expansion joint (14) includes a preformed resilient center section (16), which is preferably formed of epoxy modified urethane, having reinforcing members (18) bonded along opposite edges thereof in order to provide a better bond width the adhesive bedding compound (19) and onto the respective structural members (10, 12) while minimizing overall joint with an suspectability to damage and/or cohesive failure. The preformed resilient center section (16) and the recesses of the structural members (10, 12) in which it is received are preferably offset from the gap (24) in an asymmetrical configuration.
