California's Infrastructure Scores a C-

The 2019 Infrastructure Report Card: This report assigns a letter grade to each category and to the overall report card, to more effectively communicate the general state of our California infrastructure to state and local legislators, as well as to the public. The 2019 California Infrastructure Report Card gave the overall infrastructure a grade of C-, which means California’s infrastructure is in mediocre condition and requires attention.Click on the graphic below to find out where we’ve improved, where we’ve slipped, and learn about how we can improve going forward.

America's Infrastructure Scores a C-

Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Report Card for America’s Infrastructure depicts the condition and performance of American infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card—assigning letter grades based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement.

The 2021 Infrastructure Report Card: Grades are in and America’s cumulative infrastructure GPA is a C-. For the first time in 20 years, our infrastructure GPA is a C-, up from a D+ in 2017. This is good news and an indication we’re headed in the right direction, but a lot of work remains.

Legacies

Finding the Words

I presume that if you’re reading this article, you probably became an engineer because your affinity for the language arts was not as strong as for math and sciences (assuming you even liked language arts at all).  While I personally enjoy writing and have been told that I am not terrible at it, I still find writing articles like the ones for this column to be challenging.  Newsletter articles offer a blank canvas to express your thoughts on a variety of topics, which can be overwhelming.
