MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The engineering firm behind the inspection of the I-40 Hernando-DeSoto bridge is getting recognition.

The Engineering Excellence Awards honored Michael Baker International with the Grand Conceptor Award for the firm’s part in the emergency repair of the I-40 bridge earlier this year.

The bridge closed in May after a fracture was found in one of the bridge’s support beams.

The bridge reopened in August.
