Wilson Bridge project contractor must meet deadlines or pay

For Corey Heisey and Glen Burnie-based McLean Contracting Co., time really is money. As the contract manager for a $4.8 million grading project on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, he has to get his people working fast to reopen the lanes. Or the company has to pay.

Heisey, who works for McLean, is overseeing replacement of 17,000 feet of grading on the Capital Beltway bridge for the Virginia Department of Transportation - a project taking place weekend nights.

McLean, a 300-employee company that's been in business since 1903, is under contract to open the lanes by 10 Saturday and Sunday mornings. The company will receive $5,000 for every hour the lanes are reopened before 10 a.m., but penalized $5,000 for every 15 minutes the lanes are not reopened after 10 a.m.

Heisey says he's not worried. "We've done quite a few contracts like this before," he said, adding that McLean hasn't yet had to pay for tardiness.

Miss Pintail has come out to sail.

The new Miss Pintail is available for fishing and cocktail parties. It offers trips to Baltimore for Orioles and Ravens games, or to bayside spots for a quick crab feast. The vessel can hold up to 30 people.
