IQ Volume 2 Issue 4

The newest issue of Garver's IQ newsletter is hitting the streets. This issue features:

A century-old structure that has been restored. Featuring stone piers, wooden planks, and a steel structure, the historic War Eagle Bridge in Northwest Arkansas is a community icon and treasured landmark. And now that it has been restored, visitors will continue to cross the bridge and enjoy the nostalgic aura of days gone by.

A wastewater treatment plant upgrade that is being constructed in phases to save money and help the city address a DEQ consent order. The City of Mustang, Oklahoma had to upgrade its wastewater treatment plant within a fiscally strapped budget. The city worked with Garver to tackle this major capital expense by designing the project in two phases, separating them by 10 years, and utilizing government funding sources. The first phase is now complete, and the project has increased the plant's efficiency and doubled the capacity, all without expanding the site's footprint with new construction.

A runway extension that helps isolate general aviation from air carrier traffic. Little Rock National Airport extended Runway 18/36 another 1,100 feet. This enables airfield controllers to use the 6,224-foot Runway 18/36 for more business jet traffic and dedicate the other runways to air carrier operations.

A transportation project that has received a long-awaited environmental clearance. The proposed 12-mile arterial loop in Conway, Arkansas is a step closer to realization after Garver completed an environmental impact study that has resulted in the city receiving environmental clearance to continue with the project's design and construction.

Garver's specialization in LED airfield lighting. Airports are using LEDs to decrease operational costs, increase lighting system reliability, and improve airfield visibility for pilots. Ever since the FAA certified LED taxiway edge lights in 2002, Garver has worked with airports, the FAA, and lighting manufacturers to understand LEDs and specialize in their application.
