A new report that looks at New York’s public infrastructure has given the state an overall failing grade.
The New York Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers issued its inaugural report card Tuesday and gave the state’s infrastructure a grade of C minus.
The report looked at Aviation, Bridges, Dams, public water and sewer parks roads and public transit systems.
More than half of the state’s bridges are over 75 years old, according to the report. That’s well above the national average of 42 years.
Engineers say modernizing the state’s infrastructure should be a top priority for elected officials.
