Report Card for Alabama’s Infrastructure Has Arrived!

To raise awareness about Alabama’s infrastructure needs, ASCE released the inaugural Report Card for Alabama’s Infrastructure, on December 10th modeled after the ASCE’s Report Card for America’s Infrastructure.  Using a simple A to F school report card format, Alabama’s Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, assigning grades and making recommendations for how to raise the grades. The 11 major categories that are reported in the 2015 Alabama State Report Card are: aviation, energy, ports, rail, bridges, waste and storm water, inland waterways, roads, dams, drinking water, and transit.

The results of this Report Card were revealed December 10th in Birmingham. The Report Card for Alabama’s Infrastructure is available online at www.infrastructurereportcard.org/alabama, and a link to a PDF of the report is available here.
