America’s 2013 Infrastructure score is a D yet again

Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) releases a report card for America’s Infrastructure. This report is intended to provide a professional a depiction and a review of the nation’s infrastructure.  Generally, ASCE assigns an school-report-type overall  grade as well as individual grades in 15 infrastructure categories.  This year, the overall score is a disappointing D+. The score, while still technically considered failing, is an improvement from the 2009 D score.
