These awards are open to contractors and recognize outstanding safety performance and excellence in construction. Wagman Heavy Civil, Inc’s. I-270 at Watkins Mill Road Interchange Project in Montgomery County, Maryland received the Excellence in Infrastructure Award in the category over $15 million and the Contractor Safety Award in the category of 500,000 – 1 million man hours.
The $92M I-270 at Watkins Mill Road Interchange Project for the Maryland State Highway Administration relieves congestion on one of Montgomery County’s most congested corridors.

Despite COVID-19, the project was completed safely, and ahead of schedule in mid-2020, at which time MDOT SHA held its first ever virtual ribbon cutting ceremony.
