Sharing Traffic Knowledge

Approximately 15 years ago, Garver added traffic engineering to our expertise. What started as one person dedicated to traffic studies and design has developed into a team of professionals with a passion to improve our transportation systems' safety, quality, and driving experience. The Garver Traffic Team provides traffic engineering services such as traffic studies, signal design, intersection design, pedestrian facilities, permanent signing, ITS, and maintenance of traffic. By having a team focused on traffic aspects, we can provide a high-degree of technical competence and develop solutions to complicated projects.

Several members of Garver's Traffic Team recently attended the Missouri Valley Institute of Transportation Engineers (MOVITE) annual fall meeting in Little Rock, Arkansas to share and receive industry knowledge. The three-day technical conference included presentations on pedestrian accommodations, roundabouts, highway safety, and accessible pedestrian signals.

In addition to hosting a vendor booth and assisting with registration, four Garver employees contributed to the presentations. Garver Traffic Team Leader Nicci Tiner, PE, PTOE; 2011 Arkansas MOVITE Director Nathan Becknell, PE; and Project Engineer Claire McKinney, EI served as session moderators. Becknell also led a session on traffic knowledge, and Bridge Design Manager John Ruddell, PE, SE discussed the new Two Rivers Bridge that Garver designed.
