US Infrastructure Given C- on Report Card, an Improvement
The U.S. received an overall grade of C- on infrastructure for 2021.
That’s coming from the American Society of Civil Engineers who represent civil engineers around the world and advocate for increased investment in infrastructure.
It has released its scorecard every four years since 1998.
The C-minus is actually a slight improvement for the U.S.
The group says this is the first time the nation’s infrastructure has scored above the D range in two decades.
They evaluated the U.S. on 17 major categories, including aviation, roads, bridges, drinking water, energy and schools.
At the top of the class was rail, which earned the highest mark of a B.
Transit scored the lowest with a D-.
