2020 Report Card for Mississippi's Infrastructure
2020 Report Card GPA: D+
Mississippi’s infrastructure systems play a critical role in the state’s economic prosperity and help preserve – and can enhance – the quality of life for all Mississippians. However, over the past 15 years, our infrastructure systems have faced numerous, unprecedented challenges in the form of hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, and floods. Yet, every time Mississippians are faced with a challenge, they rise to meet it. Our infrastructure systems have helped us meet these challenges; now it’s our time to help our infrastructure systems. To continue to raise, retain, and attract the best and brightest, Mississippi must invest in strategic infrastructure efforts.
After all, we want Mississippi to continue its long-standing tradition of hospitality, good Lord willing, even if the creek does rise. This is why local engineers with the Mississippi Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) have conducted an exhaustive evaluation of Mississippi’s infrastructure, based on publicly available data, reports, analyses, and conversations with state and local agencies. The 2020 Report Card for Mississippi’s Infrastructure was developed as a public service to citizens and policymakers to inform them of the infrastructure needs in 12 different categories in the state.

Through the support of ASCE and active membership, and the voluntary efforts of elected officers, the Mississippi Section is committed to promoting the growth and advancement of the civil engineering profession in Mississippi, as well as, recognizing individual excellence and leadership.
