D+ Grade For U.S. Infrastructure

This year in Las Vegas, the aggregate and construction industries gathered for the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Associations annual convention to evaluate the U.S. infrastructure. (See the graphic to the right)

There were sixteen different categories that were graded in the report.(A few listed below.)

  • The railways earned a B, making it the highest grade rewarded
  • Bridges and ports received a C+
  • Aviation, dams and roads earned D grades
  • America’s transit had the lowest grade of a D-

The American Society of Civil Engineers estimate it will take at least $4.59 trillion to improve the infrastructure to a quality level by 2025.

Michael W. Johnson, president of National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association voices his concerns about families being subject to driving on such dangerous roads throughout the country. He says improving the infrastructure will help create jobs, rebuild our economy and make for safer transportation during commutes.
