A special note about the 2017 Report Card for Texas’ Infrastructure: As you may already know, ASCE Texas Section depicts the condition and performance of Texas’ infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card—assigning letter grades based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement for categories such as bridges, drinking water, and dams. You may already be familiar with the nationwide report card issued every four years, available here. The Texas Section’s Infrastructure Report Card Committee has been working hard to assess how the needed improvements to Texas’ infrastructure have been addressed since the last report card release in 2012. Our goal for the report card is to assist leaders, and the public, in understanding the investments needed to maintain these critical infrastructure systems.

 

As an ASCE Texas Section member, please be aware of this important tool and use it to start, or continue, the conversation with your community leaders about its infrastructure investment needs. The Section’s Government Affairs Committee is available to help you plan for meetings – contact Chair Tiffany Villarreal, P.E.. Visit the CECON website to register for the conference and attend the 2017 Report Card for Texas’ Infrastructure release event during the opening ceremony.
