ASCE Issues 2009 Infrastructure Report Card
Last week the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) issued their 2009 Infrastructure Report Card. Overall America's infrastructure urned a 'D,' hardly a score you'd want to bring home to mother.
The study, conducted every four years, grades 15 areas of national infrastructure from aviation to roads to waste water. The 2009 scores are very similar to grades from 2005. On their website, ASCE explains the rationale behind the grades. They also offer "5 Key Solutions" to improve our infrastructure capacity; the first solution - increased federal leadership.
