ASCE and Accelerator for America Release Map to Showcase Infrastructure Projects

— The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in partnership with Accelerator for America today announced the release of a new map which features projects that are getting underway with funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), otherwise known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). As the one year anniversary of the BIL approaches on November 15th, funding has been steadily making its way to state and local agencies across the nation, and now it is possible to track how communities are benefiting from investments.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests in all 17 of the infrastructure categories included in ASCE’s 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, which was released eight months before official passage of the law and had assigned our nation’s infrastructure a cumulative grade of ‘C-’. Communities are now benefiting from replaced lead service lines, safer roads and bridges, and new transit connections.
