Report finds Tennessee's aging infrastructure at critical point

Posted: Updated:

A newly-issued report from the American Society of Civil Engineers finds that Tennessee's infrastructure is in the same position it was in 2009.

Tennessee earned an overall grade of C,  with the state's roads earning a C+, with dams, transit and waste water categories receiving a D grade.

A grade of C is described by the group as "Mediocre: Requires attention" according to the report.

The report makes detailed recommendations to the state to identify and document existing problems and measure that could be taken to repair the problems.

The state's infrastructure is broken down into several categories:

  • Aviation
  • Bridges
  • Dams
  • Drinking water
  • Inland waterways
  • Parks
  • Roads 
  • Schools
  • Transit
  • Waste water
