2012: The Year In Review

Friday, March 1st, 2013


Maryland’s unpredictable weather conditions are a challenge for construction projects. At P. Flanigan & Sons, we overcome this obstacle through careful scheduling. Managers also communicate regularly to allocate our resources in a way that will work best with the weather conditions.

In 2012, July was the hottest month on record in over 117 years. We were also impacted by 2 hurricanes this year, Isaac and Sandy, both of which produced record breaking rainfall. Hurricane Sandy was the second costliest storm in American history, behind Hurricane Katrina. Both of these storms took place during the peak construction months.


We worked at over 100 different locations this year for a variety of customers and agencies. Some projects from 2012 include:

Work on the three year maintenance contract with Baltimore City Public Schools continued throughout the year.

The Flanigan team paved over the Light Rail Crossing at Howard Street and Conway Street in preparation for the 2012 Baltimore Grand Prix Race.

Crews paved Interstate 695 at Charles Street in Baltimore County.

We completed the safety and resurfacing of US 40 from the Baltimore City Line to the Howard County Line for the Maryland State Highway Administration.


In February 2012, P. Flanigan & Sons received an Award of Excellence at the Maryland Quality Initiative Conference for work on the BWI Runways 10-28 and 15-33 Intersection. This project was completed in August 2011 during a 54 hour runway shutdown.

In June 2012, P. Flanigan & Sons was awarded the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers, Maryland Section. This award recognizes the Baltimore City Downtown Infrastructure Improvements project completed in August 2011 in preparation for the Inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix Race.

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore awarded P. Flanigan & Sons for the Beautification of the St. Paul Street Median. This project was part of the Downtown Partnership’s long-term initiative to beautify Preston Gardens Park. Flanigan donated more than half of the cost of this project which resulted in a beautiful gateway into Baltimore’s Central Business District.

The Monroe Street Plant and Westport Plant both earned the 2012 Diamond Achievement Award for Excellence in Asphalt Plant and Site Operations. This award, from the National Asphalt Pavement Association, recognizes that we are dedicated to responsible practices and continuous improvement at our production facilities.

We received a Quality in Construction Award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) for Resurfacing and Safety Improvements to MD I-695 from MD 7 to MD 150. The work performed on this project exceeded many quality control measures. The Gap Graded mix achieved the maximum incentive for mix pay factor and the overall International Roughness Index was improved.
