I poured concrete yesterday (Friday) for my driveway. It had hardened enough to walk on before I could put a control joint in while wet. It's 22 ft. long 10 ft wide. Can I still put in a joint without cracking the cement? Thanks for the imput.

It should have been done by now.

My dilemma is I still have another side to pour; actually 2 (opposite side 10' x 22', then a 3' x 20' because of how the slope of the yard ). I'd like it to look as uniform as possible. I messed up my wrist and should take a week off to let it mend. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for answering...

by the way Duffster, I have been continuously watering the pad and so far it has not cracked. But of course that does not mean it won't in the future.

You usually can't see them at first
