COVID-19 INDUSTRY RESOURCES

The Georgia Highway Contractors Association has made a number of documents available to members regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Some resources have been archived on the "Resources" page.

ARTBA Resources

The Georgia Highway Contractors Association is affiliated with the American Road and Transporation Builders Association (ARTBA).  Below are resources made available by that partnership.


What our Association Does

The Georgia Highway Contractors Association (GHCA) is a trade association composed of member companies involved in the construction and maintenance of highways, streets, bridges, and transportation systems throughout the state of Georgia.  The GHCA serves as the lobbying organization for this industry and as a voice for industry with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and other state agencies.


Employment

GHCA member companies are hard at work building and repairing our roads and bridges. With more than 123,000 miles of public roads, nearly 15,000 bridges and 11 Major Mobility projects adding 300 new lane miles by 2030, highway contractors need road workers now.  Visit GeorgiaRoadJobs.com to learn more.

Education

Students in middle and high schools, even if they’re in a construction or shop class, are rarely exposed to the highway construction industry.  Recognizing this, the GHCA is creating NCCER compliant modules for these classes that will introduce them to some of the skills needed in this industry, as well as a grant program for teachers that will allow them to purchase materials, like tools, concrete, or asphalt, that they normally wouldn’t be able to afford.

Legislative

The GHCA serves as the primary legislative advocate for the highway industry in Georgia.  The GHCA works with the Georgia Department of Transportation and lobbies for policy and laws to improve the state of Georgia’s roads and bridges.
