2014 Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure


Most of us take infrastructure for granted in our daily lives - whether it's an easy commute across roads and bridges, clean drinking water and streams, or reliable energy to power our electronic devices. Infrastructure also moves our economy forward transporting goods from ports to roads to store shelves and people from home to work and school. In 2006, the four Sections of ASCE in Pennsylvania joined together to develop the first Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure. Four year later, the Report Card was updated and released. In June 2014, the third version of the Report Card was released statewide which included thorough assessments for 16 categories ranging from Bridges to Drinking Water to Schools.
