To raise awareness about New York State’s infrastructure needs, ASCE will be releasing the inaugural Report Card for New York’s Infrastructure, following the methodology of ASCE National’s Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. Using a simple A to F school report card format, the Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, both assigning grades and making recommendations for how to raise the grades. The categories that will be reported in this inaugural NYS Report Card are: aviation, bridges, dams, drinking water, roads, solid waste, transit, and wastewater.
