CHICAGO - The final grades are in and Illinois is getting a C- for its infrastructure.
The American Society of Civil Engineers graded the state on everything from roads to drinking water.
A C- is the same grade the state received four years ago.
The grades were as follows:
- Roads: D+
- Dams: C+
- Inland waterways: D
- Drinking water: D+
- Overall: C-
The state made improvements to its roads, public transit, dams and inland waterways. However, Illinois’ drinking water infrastructure is declining.
The report notes the state has the largest share of lead service pipes in the country.
