Welcome, Jarrod. :)

I can't tell for sure from the photo, but I would guess that is an actual construction joint rather than just a troweled in control joint. Can you verify that?

The short answer, considering your engineered joists, is no.

Welcome, Joe. :)

Is there a shower in this tub enclosure?

Is it just the photo, or does that tub extend out further than that short wall?
