When the COVID-19 restrictions began back in March 2020, I never imagined this far in the future we would be cancelling our events. We, your ASCE Central Pennsylvania Board of Directors are working to provide you with the level of service you have come to expect. We are in the process of obtaining a Zoom license to provide opportunities to obtain PDH’s. Once we have that in place, we will establish a schedule of monthly virtual meetings with speakers. We hope that everyone will login and take advantage of this opportunities. Once the restrictions are lifted we will return to in-person meetings. In the meantime, watch your email for notices on virtual presentations.

2021 Report Card For America's Infrastructure Has Been Released
Check out the newly released 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure! With an overall GPA of C-, outside of the D range earned over the last 20 years, we have made incremental progress toward restoring our nation’s infrastructure. The 2021 grades range from a B in rail to a D- in transit. Five category grades — aviation, drinking water, energy, inland waterways, and ports — went up, while just one category — bridges — went down. And stormwater infrastructure received its first grade: a disappointing D. Overall, eleven category grades were stuck in the D range, a clear signal that our overdue bill on infrastructure is a long way from being paid off.

2018 PA Report Card in the News
Have you seen the 2018 PA Infrastructure Report Card in the news? The Report Card is designed as a simple tool to help residents, businesses, and policymakers understand the state of PA’s infrastructure. Sharing the Report Card findings through news articles like these are key to continuing informed conversations about how to improve our infrastructure.
Notable to the conversation, critical decisions are going to be made in the coming year on infrastructure. Given the impact COVID 19 has had on sources of revenue for planned infrastructure work, government agencies have needed to change their paradigms; therefore, certain recommendations made in the 2018 Report Card on how to raise the grades need to be revised as we move forward. For example, a decrease in commuting has resulted in lower gas tax revenues, tolls, and transit fares. These considerations will be expanded upon in the future Report Card with the current 2018 Report card as a benchmark.
