American Society of Civil Engineers 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure
Tuesday 23 March 4 pm Eastern
Every 4 years since 2001 the ASCE has issued an Infrastructure Report Card on the state U.S. infrastructure assets. It’s first Report was issued in 1998. This year, experts graded 17 infrastructure asset categories individually and generated an overall U.S. Infrastructure grade. The overall grade improved to a “C-”. Learn why some categories improved, while others did not. And learn why the ASCE sees how improved asset management can contribute to the U.S. continuing to raise the grade.
