Intermodal Considering Suing Garver Engineers, (after Paying them $700,000) over Railroad Issues

April 27th, 2017 by

IMG_3093IMG_0289According to our news partner, Saline River Chronicle, for a number of months the Southeast Arkansas Intermodal Board has been talking about problems and difficulties getting the necessary approval to finish a road being constructed on the site of the intermodal park, that crossing the railroad.

There has been some confusion and frustration among the board members and some voiced concern aimed at the intermodal’s consulting engineer. The unhappiness seemed to boil over during the April 19th meeting of the board. Several members of the board openly voiced their concern that the consulting engineer had not worked the issue out with Union Pacific Railroad. According to a representative of the engineering firm who was present for the meeting, he indicated that the firm did not know there was any issue when they originally moved forward with the project working with two different short line railroads who at different times leased the line from UP. The matter of conflict is the location of the road crossing and the distance to a switch. A large amount of money has been expended on the road but the contractor has been unable to complete the work because no railroad approval has been granted.

State Representative Jeff Wardlaw, who sits on the board as a representative of Bradley County broached the subject of filing a lawsuite against the engineer. It was stated that the intermodal has paid the firm over $700,000.00 in fees since the project begun. Other members stated they desired to give the engineer a date to solve the matter.
