Wantman Group, Inc. (WGI) is pleased to announce it was awarded a $5 million continuing survey contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 7, which encompasses Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties on Florida’s west coast.

“WGI has consistently worked with the FDOT for over 40 years, and we are proud of our long and successful partnership. It is through relationships such as this that we continue our sustained growth as a company founded and firmly rooted in Florida.”
