TN2009 Report Card for Tennessee's Infrastructure

Tennessee's infrastructure is deteriorating and is in critical need of maintenance and improvement to meet current and future demands.

The Report Card presents an informed assessment made by the state's professional engineering community of the condition of the infrastructure critical to our quality of life in Tennessee.
