Every 4 years, the American Society of Civil Engineers releases a Report Card for America’s Infrastructure that outlines the condition and performance of the nation’s infrastructure.
Using the simple A to F school report card format, the report delivers an assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs. The Advisory Council of ASCE members assigns grades and makes recommendations for how to raise those grades. CLICK HERE to see what criteria the ASCE bases its grading on.
Well the time has come, the 2013 Report Card grades are in, and America’s cumulative GPA rose slightly since 4 years ago to a D+.
There are numerous categories that make up this cumulative GPA, CLICK HERE to learn more.
The state of our nation’s infrastructure is fundamentally important to our economy and it’s long-term growth. To have the first class economy we desire, American’s need knowledge on the status of our current infrastructure, a picture of where it needs to be, and solutions on how to get there.
