Technology has made it easy to connect and share stories and images. We’d like to have more such engagement with ARTBA members.

To highlight the value of transportation investment, we’d like to promote the great work our industry is doing through construction photos using the hashtag #transportationconstuctioniscool (Transportation construction is cool) across our social media platforms. These images also will be considered for Transportation Builder magazine’s annual “Through the Lens” feature later this fall. 

Email 300 dpi, jpg images to me:, and Carrie Halpern, ARTBA’s senior communications and program manager: Please:

  • include some details about the project, such as the location and public agency partners; and 
  • check that workers and equipment reflect required safety measures.

We are also interested in hearing about new innovations and technology, or other news that will have value and interest across our membership. Of course, we always appreciate advertising support.

Finally, be sure to let us know your social media handles. That way we can help you share the content to promote your firm and our entire industry. We also encourage our member firms to begin using the hashtag #transportationconstructioniscool in their social media postings to even further boost this effort.
