NEO Infrastructure Report CardThe report gives our region’s infrastructure an overall grade of D+, but more importantly, it sheds light on needed improvements and raises public awareness about the need for investment.

To develop this report, over the course of 18+ months, local engineering professionals volunteered their time and expertise to visit public officials, examine various sources of data, and participate in monthly progress meetings. To “grade” the infrastructure, they were considering general physical conditions including whether they jeopardize public safety, the ability to meet present and future needs, and whether operations and maintenance are meeting government regulations, in addition to other factors specific to the type of infrastructure.

Matt and Ryan’s involvement in this undertaking is exemplifies our team members’ genuine commitment to improving our community for future generations through our work for clients and participation in industry organizations.
