Minnesota's Winona Bridge Honored by AISC and NSBA

PITTSBURGH, PA — Michael Baker International, a provider of engineering, planning, and consulting services, announces that the Winona Bridge in Winona, Minnesota, 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 ... Winona 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 rehabilitation of the Winona Bridge represented the most complex historic truss bridge rehabilitation ever undertaken by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. To extend the bridge's life another 50 years, the team performed an extensive bridge analysis, evaluation, and rehabilitation that preserved the historical integrity of the 75-year-old structure. The bridge was honored as the Merit 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.
