Wagman Successfully Expedites Reopening of Westbound Chesapeake Bay Bridge

(York, Pa.) Wagman was awarded the $27 million contract by the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) for the deck rehabilitation of the Westbound lanes of the William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge over the Chesapeake Bay in Queen Anne’s and Anne Arundel Counties.  Wagman recently completed the Latex Modified Concrete (LMC) resurfacing allowing all westbound lanes to be re-opened to traffic in their permanent location.  Construction started in September of 2019 and through partnership with the MDTA and numerous stakeholders the schedule for this critical work was compressed to occur within a single construction season.

“We are thrilled to deliver these improvements to the MDTA, adjacent communities, and other stakeholders who rely on this critical bridge over one year ahead of the original contract completion date,” stated Greg Andricos, Wagman Heavy Civil’s president and coo.  “The message was loud and clear that our work must get done and our teams maximized all opportunities presented by the mild winter.”
