In 1928 a group of contractors in Tennessee organized an association whose sole aims would be to promote better contracting and conditions, to clarify specifications, and last, but certainly the most important, to secure the cooperation of the highway department through the commissioner of highways.
Thus was the beginning of the Tennessee Road Builders Association (TRBA). Starting with 22 contracting firms and four equipment and materials dealers and $15,000, TRBA has grown to nearly 325 contractors and associates state-wide.
The mission of the Tennessee Road Builders Association is to advocate the interests of the Tennessee road building industry. Our vision or motto has always been “Good Roads Save Lives, Time and Money!” TRBA is more committed to that motto than ever before.
With the partnership between TRBA, ARTBA, NSSGA, NAPA , TDOT and elected and government officials, Tennessee ’s highway system is one of the safest, most efficient, and most cost-effective in the nation.
