Engineers give Pennsylvania infrastructure a C-minus

Action News on

A civil engineering group is giving Pennsylvania poor marks for its infrastructure, saying the state has made little improvement to its roads and bridges over the past four years.

The American Society of Civil Engineers gave Pennsylvania an overall grade of C-minus.

A report released Wednesday said deteriorating roads and bridges remain as big of a problem as they were in 2010, the last time the engineering group assessed Pennsylvania's infrastructure.

The engineering group gave Pennsylvania roads a D-minus. The highest grade, a B, went to the state's largely privately run freight-rail system.

The state's new transportation-funding law will generate about $2.4 billion in new money for infrastructure by 2018.
