American Cargo Mapping

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has released its 2017 Infrastructure Report Card. This detailed report awards grades to individual infrastructure sectors based on criteria such as Condition, Funding and Operation & Maintenance.

You can explore the grades awarded to the United States cargo transportation infrastructure on a new Esri story map. The Transportation Infrastructure: Interactive Map Viewer examines the state of America's transportation network which is used to move cargo into and around the country. The map looks in turn at the state of America's roads, bridges, railways, ports and airports and examines their capacity to transport the country's cargo.

For example the section on the interstate network examines the volume of truck traffic on the country's roads, where interstates are in a poor condition and the top ten trucking choke points on the interstate network.
