High Steel Structures LLC received an Award of Excellence from the Maryland Quality Initiative (MdQI) at its 2011 annual conference in Baltimore. High Steel was recognized in the subcontractor category for the project located at the I-95 / I-695 Interchange: I-95 from Hazelwood Avenue to King Avenue and I-695 from Lillian Holt Drive to MD 7.
High Steel fabricated, delivered and erected more than 16,000 tons of structural steel for the project. The company's field operations group erected four large multi-span curved flyover bridges, some as high as 110 feet, and two straight plate girder bridges.
The I-95 / I-695 project is part of the Maryland Transportation Authority's multi-year, $450-million I-95 Express Toll Lanes project, which will ease traffic congestion by reconfiguring the ramps at the interchange and creating two fully directional interchanges, one an express toll lane and the other for general purpose traffic.

The project was constructed by a joint venture between general contractors G.A. & F.C. Wagman Inc. of York, Pa.; Corman Construction Inc. of Annapolis Junction, Md.; and McLean Contracting Co. of Glen Burnie, Md.
The MdQI is a cooperative effort by Maryland's highway industry dedicated to the continuous quality improvement of the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of Maryland's highway system.
