TIGER Grant Provides Funds to Construct I-244 Bridge

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration has signed a $49.4 million grant to construct a new westbound Interstate 244 bridge in Tulsa.

The TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Grant goes a long way in helping pay for the I-244 bridge replacement. The multi-modal bridge will be a two-level structure that carries rail, vehicular, and pedestrian traffic across the Arkansas River. The rail will accommodate both commuter and high-speed lines.

Garver has been involved in the project from its conception, including the preparation of conceptual design plans, preliminary engineering plans, and environmental assessment. Garver recently submitted final plans, specifications, and estimates for the I-244 westbound bridge and will soon complete the eastbound project as well.
