Pittsburgh, PA -- Michael Baker International, a global leader in engineering, consulting, planning, technical and professional services, is earning high praise from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) as the organization prepares to announce the winners of the 2015 America’s Transportation Awards. Two of Michael Baker’s notable projects – the I-15 US-91/1100 South Interchange in Brigham City, Utah; and the Milton-Madison Bridge along the Ohio River in Indiana and Kentucky – are among the top 10 finalists for this year’s competition.

“Michael Baker International engineered a measurable and positive impact on the daily commutes of tens of thousands of people with both the Milton-Madison Bridge and the I-15 southern freeway interchange in Utah. In both cases, we have developed innovative, time- and cost-efficient solutions to very meaningful transportation infrastructure challenges,” said Kurt Bergman, CEO of Michael Baker International. “Our full continuum of innovative solutions, our global reach and our local focus enable our collaborative teams to produce industry-leading results, and we’re proud to join our partners in earning this nomination.”

U.S.-- NAFTA freight totaled $96.1 billion in March 2015 as three out of five transportation modes – air, rail, and truck – carried more U.S.-NAFTA freight than in March 2014, according to the TransBorder Freight Data released today by theU.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). Year-over-year, the value of U.S.-NAFTA freight flows by all modes decreased by 5.3 percent. The value of NAFTA trade by pipeline and vessel declined in March due to the reduced unit price of mineral fuel shipments.
 
Freight by Mode
In March 2015 compared to March 2014, the value of commodities moving by air grew by the largest percentage of any mode, 6.0 percent. Rail freight increased by 1.5 percent and truck freight increased by 0.9 percent. Vessel freight decreased by 30.3 percent and pipeline freight decreased by 41.6 percent mainly due to the lower unit price of mineral fuel shipments.
