The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the U.S. infrastructure an overall grade of "D" in a new report, the same grade issued in its previous report, four years ago. ASCE estimates it will cost $2.2 trillion to bring U.S. bridges, roads, dams and schools up to standard. "Crumbling infrastructure has a direct impact on our personal and economic health, and the nation's infrastructure crisis is endangering our future prosperity," said D. Wayne Klotz, president of ASCE.
