Fox News ASCE CA Infrastructure Report Card

John Hogan Discusses California’s Infrastructure Report Card

Fox 40 / Sep 20th, 2021

Fox News Sacramento interviewed DEA Senior Vice President John Hogan, P.E., about ASCE’s Infrastructure Report Card for California. ASCE gave the state’s infrastructure a grade of C-. During the interview, John explained that the C- grade comes from a prolonged lack of funding.

As John said, “Things are not going to get better by themselves. The state relies on the federal government for a good portion of our infrastructure funding. We don’t rely solely on them … but the federal government really needs to set the standard by coming in and providing the lion’s share of funding for big infrastructure projects.”

John is a past President of the ASCE Los Angeles Section and an ASCE Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient.

Watch the interview to find out more about why federal funding is essential to repairing existing infrastructure and building for the future.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Held on Carnes Road

16 KMTR Eugene Oregon / Sep 15th, 2021

Douglas County held a celebratory ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate their Safe Routes to School Improvements project. The County had major safety concerns for students walking and biking from school due to high traffic volumes, fast speeds, undefined intersection crossings, continuous driveway access, and limited pedestrians/bicycle facilities. DEA designed new continuous sidewalks and buffered bike lanes on both sides of the road, upgraded storm sewer system, and new roadway pavement.

Douglas County Commissioner Kress said, “The construction was worth the wait. The dramatic difference these improvements have made in such a high traffic corridor is just remarkable. Making school zones and access to schools safer for everyone in neighboring communities is a high priority for myself and my fellow Commissioners. In addition to our partners that collaborated on the grant and our project contractors, we would also like to thank our local residents for their cooperation, patience, and understanding during construction.”
