Michigan Infrastructure Report Card Press Conference
After more than a year of hard work, the ASCE Michigan Section is ready to release the 2018 Infrastructure Report Card for Michigan. A significant number of hours were put into this report by several very dedicated members. ASCE MI Section president Myndi Bacon and past president Steve Waalkes co-chaired a committee to collect the data and write the report. The report will cover 13 categories of infrastructure including: aviation, bridges, dams, drinking water, energy, navigation, rail, roads, schools, solid waste, stormwater, transit and wastewater. The ASCE National office has also been helpful in reviewing and editing the report to make sure it is up to the standards put in place by ASCE.
A press conference has been scheduled to announce the release of the Report Card:
