Every family and business needs infrastructure to thrive – from the road you travel to work, to the pipes that deliver clean drinking water, to the inland waterways and rail that move goods from coast to coast.
The 2017 Infrastructure Report Card found the national grade for infrastructure remains at a “D+” — the same grade the United States received in 2013 — suggesting only incremental progress was made over the last four years toward restoring America’s infrastructure. ASCE evaluated 16 categories of infrastructure in the 2017 Report Card, with grades ranging from a “B” for Rail to a “D-” for Transit.
While the overall grade did not improve, seven categories did see progress. These improvements can be attributed to strong leadership, thoughtful policymaking, and investments that garnered measurable results. View the most recent grades and analysis and download the free app at
