The Maryland 404 project received the 2019 DBIA-MAR Honor Award. This $105 million design-build project for Maryland State Highway Administration consisted of the design and construction of MD 404 from a two to four lane divided highway from US 50 to east of Holly Road. Wagman formed a joint venture (404 Corridor Safety Constructors) with David A. Bramble, Inc. and Allan Myers, Inc. to design and construct the nine-mile highway. Wagman served as the managing partner. Project design partners included Wallace, Montgomery & Associates, Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, and RK&K with Century Engineering for Independent Design Quality Assurance.
The Route 7 Widening and Bridge Rehabilitation project received the 2019 DBIA-MAR Merit Award. This $41 million project for the Virginia Department of Transportation reconstructed and widened the structurally deficient Route 7 bridge over Dulles Toll Road and the Airport Access Highway from four lanes to six lanes, and added a 10-foot-wide shared-use path for pedestrians and bikes.
