zachry“What differentiates ARTBA from other industry groups is the creativity and innovative thinking it brings to the transportation advocacy arena.  The association continually pushes the envelope with unique funding proposals, cutting-edge economic reports and analyses, and attention-getting advertising on multiple platforms.  It’s a formula for public policy success.”

Steve Wright Testimonial“Many so-called pundits and prognosticators said passage of a long-term transportation bill wasn’t possible in the current harsh political environment.  ARTBA proved them wrong!  All along the way, no other organization in the construction industry came close to matching ARTBA’s reliable and accurate information on federal transportation policy matters.”

Paul Yarossi“Focused.  Persistent.  Unwavering.  Those are some of the words that come to mind to describe ARTBA’s singular push to complete action in 2015 on a long-term highway and transit bill. The credible and comprehensive information prepared by ARTBA’s government affairs team in the run up to the final passage of the FAST Act was invaluable to the engineering community.”

brock“Astec Industries and ARTBA worked in partnership to generate strong grassroots support at critical times during the debate on the highway bill. Through’s ARTBA’s use of cutting-edge digital grassroots technologies, Astec’s DontLetAmericaDeadEnd.com campaign, and initiatives by other industry firms, we kept the heat on Congress until final passage of the FAST Act.”

walton-sm“Public policy in Washington, D.C., may move at a snail’s pace these days.  But, that has never stopped ARTBA.  The national highway freight program and dedicated funding source for it contained in the 2015 highway and transit investment law achieves a goal that ARTBA had been doggedly pushing for since it introduced the ‘Critical Commerce Corridors’ in 2007.”

nye“ARTBA doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit.’  The end result of that relentless focus was the December 2015 passage of a long-term highway and transit investment bill that will provide much-needed market stability for the first time in a decade.”


Ward Nye
President & CEO
