KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Civil engineers are giving Missouri's infrastructure a C minus.
The regional chapters of the American Society of Civil Engineers released the letter grade Wednesday. It was part of a report card that evaluated the condition of the state's aviation, bridges, dams, drinking water, energy, inland waterways, levees, railroads, roads, schools and wastewater. Each sub-category also received a grade.
The engineers found the most faults with the state's dams and energy, awarding them both D-minus grades. The report says Missouri regulates only a portion of the dams that could cause significant damage if they failed. The engineers also said more investment is needed to help shift from coal toward more sustainable energy.
The state's roads earned a C. Lawmakers ended their session without approving a penny state sales tax for transportation.
