America's Crumbling Infrastructure -- And How To Fix It

An interview with president of the American Society of Civil Engineers on how to get our public works back in shape.

A report from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) judges the U.S. on 15 infrastructure categories and awards the country an overall grade of “D”. We speak to the ASCE president about the report and ways to get our public works back in shape.

"Our country’s approach to infrastructure is piecemeal. So as a first step we need a body to develop a plan for sustainable infrastructure for the 21st century for the United States. We [at the ASCE] are working on a letter to the federal administration asking them to form such a commission."
