score, tap/epoxy dowels @ 24” o.c. staggered and use a bonding agent over the entire surface… then pour the rest of concrete and double up your control joint locations for insane amount of cracking that will still occur, and problem solved!

Elevated one-way P/T slab designed for 7" thickness.  ACI 117 has a tolerance of -0.25 in.  Measured thickness as constructed of 6.00" to 6.50", with parts of the slab as thin as 5.13".  This is an area of about 3,000 sf in a parking structure on a tight schedule, where all surfaces will be visually exposed.  A decision will be made manana.
