SR-7 Over Tallahatchie River

Bridge Replacement

For decades, an aging truss bridge over the Tallahatchie River in Lafayette County, Mississippi provided one of only two access points in and out of a thriving university town. When the Mississippi Department of Transportation needed to replace the bridge, difficulties arose within the anticipated migration of the river channel and the ensuing deep scouring of the bridge foundation. But, Garver overcame those complications by providing roadway, bridge, and hydraulic design services. The final product replaced the aging truss bridge with a 2,210-foot-long structure that utilized deeply embedded, permanently cased drilled shaft foundations.
