The I-244 Multimodal Bridge is the second-largest single project ever awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
Both the eastbound and westbound bridges will be finished by summer 2014. Garver completed bridge design in an accelerated, nine-month schedule. The bridge will carry highway traffic on the upper level and high-speed rail transit, light rail transit, and pedestrian/bicycle traffic on the lower level. I-244 is the first interstate in Oklahoma to be lit with LED lighting. The I-244 Multimodal Bridge is the second-largest single project ever awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

Interstate 244

Construction Nearing Completion at I-244 Multimodal Bridge

Featured in IQ: 2014 Volume 6 Issue 1

Garver designed a replacement to the deteriorated westbound I-244 bridge across the Arkansas River in Tulsa within an accelerated, nine-month schedule. The new multimodal bridge will improve Tulsa's transportation infrastructure and encourage economic growth by carrying highway traffic on the upper level and high-speed rail transit, light rail transit, and pedestrian/bicycle traffic on the lower level.

"This is a significant project with many components," said Project Manager Jason Langhammer. "There were many design challenges, but in the end, we're taking a bridge that was old and costly to maintain and replacing it with one that has an increased capacity and functionality."

Garver's work on the project incorporated roadway, bridge, rail, traffic, and lighting. The Garver Team also worked directly with the project artist to complete the aesthetic aspects of the project.

The project is the second-largest single project ever awarded by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. (The first was the Interstate 244 Inner Dispersal Loop reconstruction project, which was also designed in part by Garver.)

Garver estimates construction on the westbound bridge is 95 percent complete. The eastbound bridge has a projected completion date of spring 2015.
