The latest scores are out, and infrastructure in the United States is making progress — but there’s still room to improve.
The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has published its latest Infrastructure Report Card, which examines 16 major categories detailing the country’s infrastructure needs and grades current conditions using a school report card format. The report, released every four years, is intended to highlight the importance of future investments to upgrade American’s aging infrastructure.
For the first time in 20 years, the report card has given U.S. infrastructure an overall grade higher than a D. It’s a C- this year, up from a D+ in 2017.
As the report notes, while improvements have been made, proactive, detailed, and efficient engineering is still needed, and Stiver Engineering is ready for the task. Our clients know they can count on our dependable, responsive service to ensure the best possible outcome for their projects.
