The following is the U.S. infrastructure comprehensive assessment report 2021 From American Society of Civil Engineers recommended by recordtrend.com. And this article belongs to the classification: Investment & Economy, research report.
The American Society of civil engineers has released the “comprehensive assessment report of American infrastructure in 2021”, and Americans have made some progress in restoring national infrastructure. For the first time in 20 years, infrastructure has gone beyond D.
In 2021, the grade will vary from B for railway to D for transportation. Five categories (aviation, drinking water, energy, inland waterways and ports) rose, while the bridge category declined. Stormwater infrastructure got the first level: disappointing D. Overall, there are 11 categories of grades stuck in the D range, which clearly shows that the infrastructure construction of the United States still has a long way to go.
Although the report rates 17 categories separately, infrastructure is a system that is more closely linked than ever before. When looking at low levels and analyzing the data behind them, three trends are worth noting:
1. Maintenance backlog is still a problem, but asset management helps to prioritize limited funds. Transportation and wastewater treatment industries have amazing maintenance defects. Having a clear understanding of the areas that need the most available funds can improve the performance and public safety of the whole system.
2. State and local governments have made progress. Increased federal investment or reforms have also had a positive impact on some categories. Since 2010, 37 states have raised gas taxes to fund important transportation investments. 98% of the local infrastructure voting initiatives were passed in November 2020. At present, at least 25 major cities and states have core competitiveness.
3. The data of some infrastructure sectors are still lacking or unreliable. There is still a lack of reliable status information or asset lists in school facilities, dams and rainwater departments. In order to determine the investment target and allocate funds, we should take the conventional and reliable data as the standard.
