President’s Message – April 2017

ASCE has released its newest edition of the Infrastructure Report Card and the United States infrastructure is not doing a whole lot better now than it was four years ago. With grade point average of D+, ASCE has determined that the state of our current infrastructure is in more or less the same place it was in 2013 when ASCE provided the same grade point average of a D+. I can just hear my students now, “Yesssss, my grade didn’t get worse. There’s still a chance!”
