New Report Grades National, Local Infrastructure

America’s infrastructure is still crumbling, but it's just crumbling a little less than it was.
    
The American Society of Civil Engineers released its report card, giving the U.S. a “D +”.
    
That’s better than the “D” it got back in 2009.
    
So what are some of Minnesota’s weak points?

The group says 52-percent of the state's roads are "poor" or "mediocre" in quality. That is costing the average driver $250 a year, according to the report.

47 dams in the state are also considered hazardous. More than 400 of the state's bridges are also believed to be functionally obsolete.
