Woodrow Wilson Bridge - Maryland Approach & Interchanges

Location Oxon Hill, MD

Duration December 2001 – November 2009

Wagman received five separate contracts for the Woodrow Wilson Bridge replacement project. The contracts totaled over $270 million, and involved constructing the new National Harbor interchange and reconstructing the I-295 interchange, portions of the MD 210 interchange and along the I-95/I-495 Maryland corridor up to the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge. Maintenance and protection of traffic was extensive as a result of the project’s location along the heavily traveled I-95 / 495 corridor, outside Washington, D.C.
