Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers releases the Infrastructure Report Card, which details the condition and performance of 16 categories of infrastructure and assigns a letter grade to each. Each infrastructure category is evaluated on the basis of capacity, condition, funding, future need, operation and maintenance, public safety, resilience, and innovation. During this webinar, ASCE officials will talk about what the 2017 report says and the resources available to policymakers who may want to explore their states’ infrastructure needs as they consider funding and policy options this year.
