Ohio Infrastructure Report Card Media Advisory

On May 20th, Ohio Council will hold a press conference at the Ohio Statehouse to unveil the findings as reported in the Ohio Infrastructure Report Card.  Ohio Council formed a committee in April 2008 to begin the task of gathering information to report on conditions of 10 infrastructure related topics.  The goal of the Ohio Infrastructure Report Card Committee is to develop a document to be used by legislators, government officials and members to get a better picture of the conditions of our roads, bridges, schools, water systems, airports and other areas, what needs to be done to

State of Ohio Infrastructure Report Card

In 1998, the American Society of Civil Engineers developed and published its first report card on the infrastructure of America, assigning letter grades to various areas of infrastructure importance.  Since that time, ASCE has updated the report card in 2001, 2003, 2005 and most recently early 2009.  This latest report card, 2009reportcard , explains and illustrates the problems and difficulties that our country is having in maintaining its critical infrastructure and recommends possible solutions to consider to fix these deficiencies.   In addition, many states have developed their own report cards to highlight areas of concern on their local levels.

At their Spring 2008 meeting, the Ohio Council of local ASCE sections formed a committee to develop a Report Card on the State of Ohio's infrastructure. Kevin Carpenter was appointed as chairperson of the report card committee.  Solicitations went out in April and May via the Council and sections to invite members to participate on the committee. The first meeting, held in June 2008,  determined which areas of infrastructure the committee believed was important to investigate.  The categories that were selected included:

  • Aviation
  • Bridges
  • Dams
  • Drinking Water
  • Electricity
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Railroads
  • Roads
  • Schools
  • Transit
  • Wastewater
