Michael Baker International, a global leader in engineering, planning and consulting services, announced that Francesco (Frank) M Russo, PhD, PE, Vice President and Technical Director, Bridge Engineering for Michael Baker, was recognized by the American Institute of Steel Construction with its Special Achievement Award. He will receive the award April 3 during NASCC: The Steel Conference, in St. Louis.

Dr Russo is recognized for his contributions to the advancement of knowledge in inspection and emergency rehabilitation of complex steel structures. He is considered one of the top engineers in structural steel bridge design and the behavior of complex bridges. Known for his collaborative way of bringing engineers together to tackle complicated engineering problems, Dr. Russo has worked on several high-profile and high-pressure failure investigations. In addition to his stature as a practicing engineer, he has distinguished himself as an educator through numerous steel bridge articles he has authored and the short courses and college-level courses he has taught.

The Special Achievement Award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated notable achievements in structural steel design, construction, research or education. It honors those who have made a positive and substantial impact on the structural steel design and construction industry.

A project in which Mr. Russo played a lead role, the Delaware River Bridge Emergency Response, was recognized by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Pennsylvania (ACEC/PA) with its 2019 Grand Conceptor Award for Michael Baker's emergency field and office support, including engineering analysis, design and plan review to support truss repair, on-site operations and non-destructive testing (NDT). The bridge project was the largest-ever in the United States to use NDT and materials testing to assess a damaged steel bridge.
