Repaving Runway 36R
Rather than shutting down an entire runway for a lengthy period of time, Garver worked with a subcontractor and the Tulsa International Airport to shutdown pieces of the runway for short amounts of time, which helped limit operational impact. The airport repaved sections of Runway 36R by limiting construction to weekends, and the final phase consisted of 12 weekends to help upgrade an airport that services a metropolitan population area of one million people.
