Civil engineers say Texas’ infrastructure needs maintenance, money

When Texas civil engineers took a hard look at the state’s infrastructure this year, they graded it a solid C — but with a whole lot more D’s and D minuses than B pluses, and not a single A on this report card.

The Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers presented the 2012 report card on Thursday in Fort Worth. The state was downgraded in particular for a lack of maintenance planning and sustainable funding.
