As a full-service trade association, ARTBA focuses not only on growing and protecting the transportation construction market, but also in providing its members with programs and services to help them remain competitive. This week, the association’s Economics team announced two free new web-powered resources to help your business.

First is a series of Wage & Salary Guides for seven different sectors in transportation construction: highway and bridge contractors; airport, rail and transit contractors; planning and design; aggregate materials suppliers; construction equipment manufacturers; guardrail manufacturers; and sign manufacturers. Each contains detailed wage and salary information for over 100 jobs at the national, state and local levels. The guides will help you compare salaries with other industries and with your competitors in the transportation infrastructure business.

Second, the National Bridge Conditions Database provides access to critical data on over 610,000 structures across the country. You can create custom reports and download data with over 40 characteristics on each bridge, including location, condition, structure type and materials. The database will help you to gather intelligence on potential market development opportunities in states where you do business.

To access these products, visit the Members’ Only section of www.artba.org. If you don’t already have a members’ only account, you will have the opportunity to create one.

Please contact ARTBA’s Lital Nada with any questions.
