Michael Baker’s iconic bridge project, 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. Recognizing innovative design and engineering, the award is the highest honor bestowed on bridge projects by the U.S. structural steel industry.
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 historic 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.
