The Road to Completion
Moving people and products efficiently is fundamental to our economy. With ever-increasing traffic, aging infrastructure and limited funding, developing effective and economical transportation solutions is a necessity.

Garver takes transportation projects from concept to reality with innovative expertise that minimizes cost and schedules while optimizing efficiency and service life of the system. Our professionals pave the way through planning, environmental clearance, design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation, and construction.

Understanding the complexity and reduced timeline associated with this project, we knew that what we asked of Garver was next to impossible—but they came through with flying colors.

    An innovative bridge construction method is being used for the first time in Oklahoma, and it looks to save motorists both time and money. Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) methodology seeks to reduce construction duration and impacts on traffic. Additional benefits include improving work zone...


    The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department recently chose Garver to manage its Connecting Arkansas Program. The $1.8 billion transportation improvement program is the largest highway construction program ever undertaken in Arkansas by AHTD. Through a voter-approved constitutional amendment...


    Garver provided design services for 22 miles of Interstate 540's four-lane highway constructed through the rugged Boston Mountains. Because of the terrain, the project included deep cuts, high fills, and Arkansas' first highway tunnel. The design included protection of environmentally sensitive areas,...


    An infamous and dangerous S-curve along Interstate 59 in Laurel, Miss. is now only a memory, replaced by a roadway successor destined to improve traffic flow and reduce accidents. Newly constructed with an elevated bridge, the realigned interstate replaces the non-standard S-curve near downtown Laurel....


    Garver helped Central Arkansas move toward completing the River Trail, a 14-mile bicycle and pedestrian trail that runs through Little Rock and North Little Rock along the banks of the Arkansas River by serving as the engineer for the Big Dam Bridge, a 4,122-foot pedestrian bridge over the Murray Lock...


    "This is arguably the most complex stimulus project in the whole country."   Rep. James Oberstar, U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman, made this comment during a January tour of the Interstate 244 Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL) project in Tulsa, Okla. He left impressed...


    Hills along U.S. Highway 281 in Major County, Okla. added a level of complexity to an Oklahoma Department of Transportation project that replaced an aging bridge. The project runs through an area known to locals as Griever Canyon. Constructed in the 1930s, the three-span, 100-foot-long bridge across...


    On County Road 66 near the rural community of Judsonia, Ark. in White County, a historically significant bridge spans the slow-rolling Little Red River. Since its opening in 1924, the Judsonia Bridge has become a fixture in the community, and now the bridge's design serves as a reminder of engineering...


    Mount Comfort Road, a minor arterial street in Fayetteville, Ark., now provides a smoother, less congested commute to nearby Interstate 540. Originally a two-lane road without curb and gutter, a widening project expanded the road to four lanes and incorporated sidewalks, bike lanes, drainage upgrades,...


    Although widening Brockington Road in Sherwood, Ark. faced several construction challenges, the city worked with Garver's construction engineering and inspection (CE&I) team to complete the project on time and under budget. After a different engineering firm designed the three-quarter-mile widening...


    Last year the U.S. Census Bureau named the Northwest Arkansas metropolitan area the nation's 38th fastest-growing area. Such growth has affected local infrastructure and its ability to support the growth. "Motorists suffered long waits at intersections in Springdale—during peak hours traffic...


    Improving a major Oklahoma highway bridge required designing for two modes of travel—highway and waterway. State Highway 51 in Wagoner County crosses the Verdigris River, which is part of the 445-mile-long McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System. Barges use the waterway to travel from...
