Garver provided design services for a cast-in-place reinforced concrete box culvert that provided year-round accessibility to a valuable portion of training ground at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. The crossing with five 20-foot by 15-foot cells, headwalls, wingwalls, and aprons replaced the previous bridge that closed off a portion of training ground when the East Cache Creek would flood. As part of the design-build project, Garver designed the new bridge nearly 20 feet above the previous crossing and provided 12-foot lanes capable of supporting fully loaded, heavy expanded mobility tactical trucks.
We’ve done a lot of work at Fort Sill over the years, so we’ve seen the impact that the flooding creek would have on the Army’s operations. The new bridge helps the Army maintain its strict training schedules, and it’s a much safer option, too.Wallace Smith Garver Director of Federal Services
