Honor Award – Garver, LLC, Kansas City

Firm Name: Garver, LLC, Kansas City

Project: US 69 Missouri River Bridge Replacement

Client: Missouri Department of Transportation

In 2014, MoDOT solicited the industry for a two stage, best value design-build project for the removal and replacement of the US 69 bridges. The American Bridge/Garver (AB/G) Team was the successful design-build proposer to provide a new river crossing with four 12-foot lanes, a shared use path, improvements to two intersections, and maintain traffic during the bridge replacement.  Beyond delivering an important piece of infrastructure for the community, this project also provided an example of great teamwork.  MoDOT, American Bridge, and Garver’s staff were committed to achieving the project goals and making the project a success. By keeping a professional demeanor and staying level headed even during difficult situations, the team was able to overcome day to day challenges that threatened the project’s goals. Part of that can-do attitude was their open mindedness, patience, and willingness to use innovative solutions to get the project back on track.
