Welcome to The American Society of Civil Engineers Wisconsin Section

Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 140,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society. The Wisconsin Section of ASCE was originally organized as the Milwaukee Section. The Milwaukee Section started on March 20, 1923. Several meetings were held jointly with the Engineers and Scientists of Milwaukee (ESM) and in September 1926, a contract was signed affiliating the two groups. In April 1938, the Milwaukee Section changed its name to the Wisconsin Section. Over time, four branches have been established-Southwest in 1962, Fox River Valley in 1966, Northwest in 1974, and Southeast in 1977. The Wisconsin Branch currently consists of approximately 2000 members.

Wisconsin Civil Engineers Release Statement After House Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation

Washington, DC –The American Society of Civil Engineers, Wisconsin Chapter issued the following statement today after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:

The ASCE Wisconsin Section commends the U.S. House of Representatives for passing this historic legislation to improve our nation’s infrastructure," said Ken Mika, PE M.ASCE, Co-Chair of the Wisconsin Report Card and Advocacy efforts. ”With Wisconsin facing an estimated $13 billion transportation infrastructure shortfall over the next 10 years, this legislation would provide $5.5 billion over five years for roads, bridges, and other transportation projects. Wisconsin’s infrastructure received a cumulative grade of “C” in the ASCE Wisconsin Section’s 2020 Report Card for Wisconsin’s infrastructure, citing significant funding needs for roads, bridges, drinking water, wastewater systems, energy grid and more. The legislation isn’t perfect but it will provide critical funding in the short and long term.” 

The bipartisan infrastructure bill goes far beyond roads and bridges, addressing most of the 13 categories in the state’s 2020 report card. Wisconsin faces an $8.6 billion drinking water investment gap, which would receive significant support from the $55 billion that this legislation will allocate for these systems nationwide. The state’s nine major airports would benefit from the $25 billion in increased airport infrastructure funding in the bill. The infrastructure bill would also invest $65 billion in broadband expansion to provide access to communities who lack reliable service.

As stewards of our state’s infrastructure, the ASCE Wisconsin Section urges President Biden to sign this historic bipartisan infrastructure legislation for the well-being of our communities.
