Question about widening concrete driveway


Ok, so basically I'm going to add a sidewalk next to my concrete driveway. My question is this. Do I need to add one of those cork expansion thingies in between the existing and the new or can I just pour the new right next to it?

dirt. That's a excellent point. So I probably just need a expansion at the end where there will be concrete on both sides. opposite side of dirt probably doesn't need one?
