Historic Bridge Reopens

The renovation of the century-old War Eagle Bridge in Benton County, Arkansas is complete, and it has reopened in time for the War Eagle Arts and Crafts Fair this weekend.

Garver provided planning, design, and construction observation and administration to rehabilitate the bridge's main truss span, replace the approach spans, and rehabilitate the stone piers, timber deck, and other structural aspects. Faced with construction time constraints due to the area's nationally acclaimed craft fairs, Garver understood the importance of these events and worked hard to complete the project on time and under budget.

The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the integrity of its appearance was maintained throughout the construction process. Historical information on the bridge is available on the national register nomination form posted by the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department.
