Two Garver employees ran in the Big Dam Bridge Twilight 5K race in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Battling 90-degree heat, Bill Ruck and Jason Johnston took part in the 3.1-mile run, which included two trips over the Big Dam Bridge. Bill placed second in his age group, averaging an 8:17-minute mile and completing the race in 25:42. Jason ran an average 10:08-minute mile and finished in 31:26.

Garver provided structural and electrical design services and a topographic survey as part of the bridge's construction. The Big Dam Bridge extends across a working lock and dam above the Arkansas River. Billed as the world’s longest pedestrian bridge specifically constructed for recreational purposes, the Big Dam Bridge traverses 4,200 feet across the water and connects the metropolitan areas of Little Rock and North Little Rock, Arkansas.
