The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department recently chose Garver to manage its Connecting Arkansas Program. The $1.8 billion transportation improvement program is the largest highway construction program ever undertaken in Arkansas by AHTD. Thirty-one projects in 19 corridors improve the intermodal transportation system and accelerate the widening and construction of nearly 200 miles of four-lane highways and interstates.
Garver experimented with the seal coat used on the 43-year-old asphalt at Pogue Airport, which was in bad need of repair. Garver's phased approach only required the airport to close for seven days while the seal coat was installed on the runway. This reconstruction project will leave the Oklahoma airport looking new for years to come.
The world spotlight shines on the Oklahoma River in Oklahoma City as it's now the first permanently lit river race course in the world. Top-rated canoe/kayak athletes and rowing teams have moved across the country to Oklahoma City to train at this unique venue. The recently completed project to light the river was the first of eight projects under the city's 10-year construction program, called MAPS 3, which is designed to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma City.
Over the years, Garver has provided the country's largest youth summer encampment with various engineering projects. With the successful completion of the camp's new state-of-the-art water treatment facility, the relationship continues to grow.
