12th Annual Through the Lens: Transportation Construction in Photos

Over the summer, “Transportation Builder” staff asked ARTBA member firms and public agencies to submit their best photos of transportation construction projects from across the nation to run in the magazine’s 12th Annual “Through the Lens: Transportation Construction in Pictures.”

As in previous years, we received some excellent photos. ARTBA members provided shining examples of the industry’s excellent work in designing, building and improving America’s transportation network.

Thanks to those who submitted the outstanding images below!
