Woodrow Wilson Bridge Replacement
Maryland State Highway Administration
A quarter of a million cars each day. On a bridge designed for 75,000.
When the much-needed Woodrow Wilson Bridge replacement was put out to bid, the one solitary response was 72% over budget! So a formal Value Engineering study was held to bring the cost under control.
By dividing the project into three separate contracts, attracting additional bidders and identifying $50 million in alternative savings, the bridge cost was lowered by $362 million.
