Skanska has, as part of a joint venture with Corman Kokosing Construction Company and McLean Contracting Company, signed a contract with Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transportation Authority to design and build the new Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial/Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge over the Potomac River, USA. Skanska will include its share of the contract worth USD 301 million

The existing, two-lane bridge which connects Newburg, Maryland, and Dahlgren, Virginia, will be replaced with a new about 3 kilometers, four-lane structure. In addition, the project will include roadway realignment and construction of about 800 meters on either side of the bridge. It will also utilize an All-Electronic Tolling system.

Once the new bridge and roadway construction is complete the existing bridge will be demolished and used to create artificial reefs in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Construction will begin March 2020, with the new bridge expected to open by 2023. Project completion is scheduled for December 2024.
