Future U.S. Highway 412 Bypass earns ACPA award
A Garver-designed freeway section that opened areas of Northwest Arkansas for future development has been recognized by the Arkansas/Oklahoma chapter of the American Concrete Pavement Association.
The Future U.S. Highway 412 Bypass in Springdale, Arkansas, was recently named a Silver Winner in the State of Arkansas Excellence in Concrete Pavement Awards. The project, designed by Garver for the Arkansas Department of Transportation, won in the Divided Highways Rural category and was the first of its kind to accommodate east-west traffic in the growing region.
“Since opening, this new stretch of road has delivered the desired outcome, and that is a safe and efficient alleviation of congestion that provides a head start for future improvements,” said Garver Roadway Team Leader John Cantabery. “We were proud to work with ARDOT on this long-needed upgrade to the area’s infrastructure.”
Garver provided roadway and bridge design for the four-mile long stretch of four-lane controlled-access interstate that connects I-49 to the east and State Highway 112 to the west. Design work included 10 bridge designs, including two over Spring Creek and two over Wagon Wheel Road, four overpasses, and three interchange ramps.
The project is a part of the Connecting Arkansas Program, a 10-year program managed by Garver that includes 36 highway improvement projects across the state. Last year, Roads & Bridges magazine included the Future U.S. Highway 412 Bypass in its annual list of Top 10 Roads.
