The paper gives an accurate description of the qualitative structure of an admissible BV solution to a strictly hyperbolic, piecewise genuinely nonlinear system of conservation laws. We prove that there are a countable set $\\\\Theta$ which contains all interaction points and a family of countably many Lipschitz curves $\\\\T$ such that outside $\\\\T\\\\cup \\\\Theta$ $u$ is continuous, and along the curves in $\\\\T$, u has left and right limit except for points in $\\\\Theta$. This extends the corresponding structural result in \\\\cite{BL,Liu1} for admissible solutions.\\r\\n\\r\\nThe proof is based on approximate wave-front tracking solutions and a proper selection of discontinuity curves in the approximate solutions, which converge to curves covering the discontinuities in the exact solution $u$.
