WASHINGTON, DC—America's civil engineers have a new app to inform and rally the public about the grim state of the nation's infrastructure.

The American Society of Civil Engineers' free app, "Save America's Infrastructure," teaches users about the 16 infrastructure categories, the economic implications of poor roads and broken water pipes, and how each state stacks up.

"Save America's Infrastructure" teaches users about the 16 infrastructure categories, the economic implications of poor roads and broken water pipes, and how each state stacks up.

An action center lets users contact lawmakers, and push notifications send alerts for the most important times to contact Congress, according to ASCE. A news section is updated with current trends.

The app also provides an easy reference to the 2013 Report Card, in which ASCE rated America's aging infrastructure a "D+."

The app can be downloaded through iTunes or Google Play.
