Every four years, ASCE issues the Report Card which evaluates conditions and investment needs for major sectors of infrastructure — including roads, bridges, drinking water systems, ports, mass transit, and the electric grid. This year’s Report Card covers 16 infrastructure categories, and it’s being released as a digital application (or “app”) that includes videos, interactive maps, and other multimedia tools. For the first time, the 2013 Report Card provides information for all 50 states, including examples of initiatives and innovations that are making a difference. For example, Oklahoma created a plan to replace or rehabilitate over 950 structurally deficient bridges between 2013 and 2020. Philadelphia implemented a program to improve resiliency and address combined sewer overflows using green infrastructure, capable of capturing water from all but the most severe storms.
Be the first to get the new Report Card at www.infrastructurereportcard.org, and just as importantly, share the grades in your social and professional networks via Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter! We hope everyone will be able to use this great product to get even more people involved in the conversation around our nation’s infrastructure.
Every family and business needs infrastructure to thrive– from your road to work, to your internet, to the pipes bringing clean water to your house. In a new app format, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure puts the most comprehensive and clear reference available on America’s infrastructure in your pocket. Complete with videos, state profiles, and interactive content, this app shows how your state’s infrastructure is doing and what needs attention. Share how America raise the grades and along with any part of the app with friends, coworkers, LinkedIn groups, or even your elected officials. Download the Report Card at www.infrastructurereportcard.org.
