    I'm going to be boring under a sidewalk (4' wide) to install a small french drain.

    Should I do this under an expansion joint, or inthe middle of a solid section?, and why?

    It's always best to do at the expansion joint, that way if you actually do crack it, it'll be along a controlled crack. We always shoot for this, but there are times when you just can't do it that way and have to go between controlled joints.
