ASCE Buffalo Section, ABCD of WNY, ITE, APWA and the Erie-Niagara Chapter of NYSSPE would like to invite you to a presentation on the recently published ASCE – New York State Council’s “New York State Infrastructure Report Card”. Learn the back round of the report card, what it means and meet several authors of the different sections. And finally discuss “Where do we go from here?”.
The goal of the Report Card is to raise public awareness about the needed investment in New York’s infrastructure, but also to reinforce the steps taken in recent years to address the mounting needs. Using a simple A to F school report card format, the Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, assign grades and make recommendations for how to raise the grades. The Report Card was written by a select group of ASCE’s nearly 6,800 engineering professionals across six regions of the state. Ms Smith will discuss the findings and review the objectives of the report card.
