Justin Ford is one of the newest electrical engineers to join the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District. Justin joined the district’s team of engineers in July 2022, who has grown to appreciate the district’s mission in the region.

“I didn’t realize the importance of the waterways in the Pittsburgh District before joining,” Ford said. “The district’s impact on the community and the local economy makes it more compelling to do my job and support the mission.”

Ford is currently working on the Upper Ohio Navigation Project, which will construct a larger lock chamber at three lock and dam facilities on the Ohio River.

Ford studied electrical engineering and computer engineering at Penn State Behrend in Eerie, Pennsylvania.

He currently serves in the U.S. Air Force Reserve after spending six years on active duty. Outside of work, Ford enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering, exploring the outdoors and tinkering in his workshop or garage.
