An independent review of the current state of infrastructure needs, capacity and funding in the State of New York by the American Society of Civil Engineers' New York State Council.
Infrastructure supports daily life and the state's economy. With thousands of entities and officials in charge of the state's network of infrastructure, rarely is information about the state's infrastructure gathered in one place and looked at as a whole. ASCE's New York State Council created this Report Card for New York's Infrastructure to report on the condition of the infrastructure and provide solutions to improve it.
As civil engineers charged with managing the care of many of the key pieces of New York State's infrastructure, we understand the challenges it faces and have used our expertise to condense complex data into an easy-to-understand analysis. When you're sick, you ask a doctor to diagnose the problem; civil engineers are the doctors of infrastructure so the Report Card is our diagnosis and prescription to treating New York's infrastructure.
