William Pines


Chief Engineer
Maryland Transportation Authority

As a design-build pioneer in Maryland, Will Pines has helped ensure the state’s Transportation Authority embraced Design-Build Done Right® best practices. As Chief Engineer, Will’s advocacy helped lead to MDTA’s first design-build project, the Governor Harry W. Nice/Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge Replacement scheduled to open at the end of 2022. Industry has applauded this first design-build effort as a “first class job” that embraced and implemented the project with a team spirited, and highly collaborative approach. As a lead on this project, Will was courageous enough and able to lead this agency to encourage the utilization of design-build for the first time, helping the MDTA to begin what could be a long and successfully design-build history.
