To raise awareness about New York State’s infrastructure needs, ASCE will be releasing the inaugural Report Card for New York’s Infrastructure, following the methodology of ASCE National’s Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. Using a simple A to F school report card format, the Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of current infrastructure conditions and needs, both assigning grades and making recommendations for how to raise the grades. The categories that will be reported in this inaugural NYS Report Card are: aviation, bridges, dams, drinking water, roads, solid waste, transit, and wastewater.
The results of this Report Card are scheduled to be revealed at simultaneous news conferences on September 29th in Rochester, Albany, Syracuse, and New York City as well as presented at the ASCE Convention in New York City in early October. This Report Card will also be available online at www.infrastructurereportcard.org/newyork.
ASCE Buffalo and ASCE Rochester Section will be jointly presenting the Report Card results in Western New York, at 10am at the Blue Cross Arena in Riverview Terrace Room. As an ASCE Buffalo section member you can attend this Report Card media release. For more information see the attached flyer or check ascebuffalo.org/events.
