Together the four ASCE Sections in Pennsylvania represent nearly 6,000 members of the civil engineering profession. Using a simple A to F school reportcard format, the 2014 Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, assigns grades, and makes recommendations on how to raise the grades. The goal of the 2014 Report Card is to raise the public’s awareness of needs for increased investment in the Commonwealth’s infrastructure, and to applaud the recent passage of the funding bills that will help raise the infrastructure grades as projects get completed. An additional goal is to give policymakers solid recommendations that the Commonwealth can use to better regulate and fund infrastructure.
