One year ago this week, we released our 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. Our nation’s D+ infrastructure grade is an important piece of data to share as we advocate for infrastructure investment, especially as the United States approaches the Highway Trust Fund’s financial cliff later this year.
Over the past year, ASCE and the Report Card have had more than 16,000 media mentions, a majority of which discuss the findings of the Report Card, including the grades of 16 infrastructure sectors covered in the Report Card and the $3.6 trillion investment needed by 2020.
We are proud that nearly every day the hard work of our Report Card Committee members earns the attention of the media and the public. To celebrate a successful year of coverage and meaningful conversations here is a compilation of a few of our favorite media mentions.
