Welcome to the ASCE Wichita Branch

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to drop by and check out ASCE - Wichita Branch.  We are looking forward to the start of a new service year and hope to enhance your engineering experience by bringing you speakers on new projects and technologies within the civil engineering industry. Please join us for civil engineering fellowship and our speakers’ expertise at our monthly meetings, highway cleanup events, and June steak fry. Also, check this website periodically for regional and national news and events that could affect our profession.

Do you have a suggestion for a speaker? Need a job advertised? Questions about ASCE? Or maybe you have ideas that may interest the civil engineering community. Please feel free to contact one of our officers.

September 10 is our first meeting for the upcoming service year, and it will include a site tour of Wichita’s South Broadway Bridge construction project. This is a high profile project that has some interesting aspects that is sure to make for an interesting presentation. Plan to join us for this meeting. Please fill out the registration, linked on the right side of this page. We look forward to serving you!

ASCE’s 2013 Report Card for

America’s Infrastructure

Every family and business needs infrastructure to

thrive– from your road to work, to your internet, to

the pipes bringing clean water to your house.  In a

new app format, the American Society of Civil

Engineers’ 2013 Report Card for America’s

Infrastructure puts the most comprehensive and

clear reference available on America’s infrastructure

in your pocket. Complete with videos, state profiles,

and interactive content, this app shows how your

state’s infrastructure is doing and what needs

attention. Share the app with friends, coworkers, LinkedIn groups, or even your elected officials. Download the Report Card at www.infrastructurereportcard.org.

Now the 2013 Report Card grades are in, and America’s cumulative GPA for infrastructure rose slightly to a D+. The grades in 2013 ranged from a high of B- for solid waste to a low of D- for inland waterways and levees. Solid waste, drinking water, wastewater, roads, and bridges all saw incremental improvements, and rail jumped from a C- to a C+. No categories saw a decline in grade this year.

The 2013 Report Card demonstrates that we can improve the current condition of our nation’s infrastructure — when investments are made and projects move forward, the grades rise. For example, greater private investment for efficiency and connectivity brought improvements in the rail category; renewed efforts in cities and states helped address some of the nation’s most vulnerable bridges; and, several categories benefited from short-term boosts in federal funding.

We invite you to take a deeper look at the nation’s infrastructure conditions in the 2013 Report Card – from the state infrastructure facts, to the interactive charts, to our three key solutions. Click here to see the Report Card.
