This first-of-its-kind industry institute includes project management academies and training programs designed exclusively to meet the professional development needs of transportation construction professionals.
Awards & Scholarship
The Awards programs help educate the public and policymakers about the transportation design and construction industry's enormous contributions to the American economy and quality of life, the environment and improving work zone safety.
The first-of-its-kind "The Lanford Family Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship" is aimed at putting the public spotlight on the hazards associated with roadway work zones and giving something back to the families of highway workers killed or permanently disabled on the job.
Hall of Fame
In 2010, ARTBA-TDF launched a “Hall of Fame” at The ARTBA Building in Washington, D.C., to honor individuals or families from the public and private sectors who have made extraordinary contributions to U.S. transportation development over their lifetime and demonstrated exceptional leadership.
