Usually in cores and shear walls, one extends vertical bars above the construction joint a distance at least equal to the lap splice length to allow for splicing bars away from the construction joint. I asked if the splices are intersecting the construction joint (i.e that part of the splice is below and part is above the joint)It is allowed?
