OK 2013 Report Card for Oklahoma's Infrastructure

Oklahoma’s infrastructure is in need of immediate attention. This is the conclusion of the 2013 Report Card for Oklahoma’s Infrastructure, the first-ever report from the Oklahoma Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The report card exists to communicate the overall performance of infrastructure. An expert team of more than twenty civil engineers researched the major components of Oklahoma’s infrastructure for more than 18 months to arrive at the Report Card’s grades. The purpose of the Report Card is for the public to easily understand how their state’s infrastructure is being maintained.
