Civil Engineers Group Gives Illinois Infrastructure C-Minus Grade


Infrastructure in Illinois gets a passing grade… but just barely, according to an association of civil engineers.

 

The group has issued a report card that gives a “C-minus” overall to the state’s infrastructure… but that finds serious deficiencies in some areas, especially roads and navigable waterways.

 

The civil engineers say the state needs a long-range, sustainable funding source to pay for immediate repairs and ongoing maintenance.

 

But it did not explicitly endorse a proposal from a separate group this week, calling for tax and fee increases to fund infrastructure improvements.
