Description

The Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE Texas Section) has assessed Texas’ infrastructure since 2004. The 2017 Report Card for Texas Infrastructure was released in September 2017 and updated seven infrastructure categories: Aviation, Bridges, Dams, Drinking Water, Flood Control, Highways and Roads, and Wastewater. This fourth update gives Texas an overall average grade of C- with only Aviation and Bridges having a satisfactory grade of B- and B respectively. The remaining categories received D’s. The unsatisfactory grades in the Flood Control and Dam’s categories are heightened since Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a category four hurricane near Rockport Texas on August 23, 2017. This presentation will review the assessment of these two categories and highlight the report findings.
