Pennsylvania's Andy Warhol (Seventh Street) Bridge Honored by AISC and NSBA

PITTSBURGH, PA — Michael Baker International, a provider of engineering, planning, and consulting services, announces that the Andy Warhol (Seventh Street) Bridge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has won a Prize Bridge Award from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA). The biennial Prize Bridge Awards honor significant and innovative steel bridges constructed in the U.S. The award is the highest honor bestowed on bridge projects by the U.S. structural steel industry. The project will be honored at the 2020 AISC World Steel Bridge Symposium, taking place in Atlanta, Georgia, from April 22-24.

"For 80 years, Michael Baker has remained at the forefront of bridge innovation and is highly regarded as an industry leader in bridge design and construction," said Scott Roux, Senior Vice President and National Practice Lead, Bridge at Michael Baker International. "The Andy Warhol (Seventh Street) Bridge ... is a shining example of the dedication of our team to rehabilitate historic and iconic bridges that serve as the backbone of our nation's infrastructure."

The Andy Warhol (Seventh Street) Bridge is one of a trio of historic, side-by-side identical bridges in downtown Pittsburgh, collectively known as the Three Sisters Bridges. Michael Baker was selected for preliminary engineering, final design, and construction-phase services for the rehabilitation of each of the 90-year-old bridges, owned and maintained by Allegheny County. This bridge is the first to be completely rehabilitated and is fully open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The bridge was honored as the National Award Winner in the Steel Bridge Rehabilitation category.

The winning projects in the Prize Bridge Awards were selected based on innovation, aesthetics, economy and design, and engineering solutions by a jury of five engineering and construction professionals.
