Civil Engineers to Grade Maine’s Infrastructure Through Virtual News Conference Next Week

AUGUSTA, Maine. — The Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will unveil its 2020 Report Card for Maine’s Infrastructure next Wednesday, December 2, 2020 through a virtual news conference. The report analyzes 16 infrastructure categories pertinent to Maine: aviation, bridges, dams, drinking water, energy, hazardous waste, levees, parks, ports, rail, roads, schools, transit, solid waste and wastewater. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing risks of holding large gatherings, ASCE’s Maine Section is broadcasting the event virtually from the Senator Inn & Spa in Augusta, Maine. The event is open to the public and will be accepting questions from the press.

The maintenance and modernization of Maine’s infrastructure is vital to our local and regional economy, public health, safety, security and the environment. Decisions about the public uses of infrastructure, for which we all pay through user fees and taxes, must made based on long-term comprehensive planning, with sustainable and reliable funding sources. The purpose of the 2020 Report Card for Maine’s Infrastructure is to raise public awareness of the importance of modern and well-maintained infrastructure. This report will help citizens and decision-makers understand how Maine’s infrastructure is faring and what can be done to modernize its systems.
