May 07 Businessexcellence 67 April 1, 2007. However, this sizeable project was completed nearly six months ahead of time, by October 2006. The $1.36 million project required a new concrete deck and repairs to the superstructure and substructure. “This is an outstanding combined performance by the private sector construction partners and Virginia Department of Transportation employees,” said Christopher Winstead, Virginia Department of Transportation District Construction Engineer. “Our team focus on results is returning measurable time and cost savings to the traveling public.” Corman Construction also won the bid to handle construction of the sizeable Virginia Urban Deck (the approach to the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge), one of the largest ongoing infrastructure projects in the US. The project, located in Alexandria, Virginia, encompasses more than seven and one half miles of new interstate highway, four major interchanges, and two six-lane Potomac River bridges. Construction began during October 2000, with a completion date of 2011. The entire cost for the project is expected to be $2.5 billion. Not only is the company involved with building new structures, but it also helps to preserve historic or valued structures. For instance, the Monocacy Aqueduct, a 512-foot long structure and seven stone arches located in Dickerson, Maryland, is considered one of the most signifi cant engineering marvels of its type and time in the US. The National Trust for Historic Corman Construction Preservation has named the aqueduct one of the 11 most endangered historic structures. Corman Construction was enlisted by the National Park Service, US Department of the Interior, to stabilize the structure in November 2002, and it was scheduled for completion in Spring 2004. The project consisted of a complete structural rehabilitation and the addition of a structural slab in the canal prism. Considered an “A-list contractor” in Virginia and Maryland, Corman Construction has been the recipient of numerous awards for quality and service over the years. In August 2002, Corman completed construction of the “urban diamond” on Reisterstown Road in Pikesville, Maryland, which is an eight-lane bridge with a widened roadway and redesigned overpass. Corman received two awards from the Maryland State Highway Department for this project: the Excellence for New Bridge Construction Award and the Excellence for Maintenance of Traffi c Award. Corman has received several other Maryland Pride Awards for completing projects early and within budget. These and other awards throughout the Eastern US include: National Partnership for Highway Quality Silver Award, Consulting Engineers Council of Maryland 1999; Drand Award for Excellence in Engineering Design at Bull Run Bridge Relocation, Maryland with Pride Award of Excellence for Partnering for the Replacement of Dual Bridges on MD 4 over Western Branch, Maryland, and the BGE Best Practice of the Month Safety Award.
