Who’s going to sign off on this one? The latest infrastructure “report card” from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) shows small improvements in the overall condition of America’s infrastructure. But, it still got only an overall grade of D+, up from a D four years ago.
So I can’t think of a lot that’s improved in that time, but ASCE says drinking water, wastewater, solid waste, roads, bridges and rail all improved slightly. I’m surprised at the inclusion of bridges, as it seems like we’re not fixing/replacing them fast enough to keep up with them aging.
The highest score for a category of infrastructure was B- and the lowest D-. Engineering News-Record breaks down the report card.
