Infrastructure Report Card

Infrastructure is a critical issue impacting Texas’s economy, society, security and future. That’s why approximately every four years, we develop a report card depicting the condition and performance of Texas’s infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card – assigning letter grades based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement.

The report card is one of our key projects. It serves an important role in raising public awareness and providing elected officials the necessary tools to support infrastructure funding. As civil engineers in the state of Texas, we have a responsibility to safeguard the life, health, and welfare of the public. We believe part of this responsibility includes providing the public and our elected leaders with critical information about the current state of our infrastructure.

On February 10, 2021, ASCE Texas Section held a virtual news conference to announce the 2021 Texas infrastructure grades. Watch the IRC release news conference. The full 2021 Texas Infrastructure Report Card is coming later in February.

The 2017 Report Card for Texas’ Infrastructure is available online:
