It's ASCE Report Card Day: Time to Do Our Homework
March 9, 2017
Remember report card day? Sweaty palms. Wondering exactly how it would go. Hoping your teacher liked you enough to show some mercy.
Today, the American Society of Civil Engineers handed out its 2017 infrastructure report card, grading us on how we were doing in 2014. They issue this report card every four years. Let's just say we're not living up to our potential.
As the ASCE says "Our nation is at a crossroads. Deteriorating infrastructure is impeding our ability to compete in the thriving global economy, and improvements are necessary to ensure our country is built for the future."
