Texas Bridge Infrastructure Earns High Marks

For years, there have been warnings about our crumbling infrastructure and the need for repairs on bridges and overpasses we use every day. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has been issuing a report card warning of problems. But what’s being done? Brett Pope is with the engineering firm Terracon. He also serves on the Texas section’s government affairs committee of the ASCE. He says the U.S. overall earned a D+ on the ASCE report card, with bridges earning a C+. The current grades are the same as those from 2013. Texas fares well, compared to the nation overall.
