Is it a live crack or a stationary one?

If it exhibits any movement over the seasons, it is considered a "live" crack. If it is stable, it will not move. Both can be repaired with a flexible repair material, but a non flexible one is preferable for dead cracks.

I'm pretty sure it is a dead crack. It was from the city putting in a flood control behind my house.
