History & Mission

1956-boxley-grayIn 1943 a small group of forward-thinking road builders founded the Virginia Road Builders Association to promote the development of the Commonwealth’s road and highway network. Similarly, in 1927 a group of conscientious aggregate producers formed the Virginia Aggregates Association to protect and promote the interests, growth and welfare of the mining industry (crushed stone, sand & gravel and industrial minerals) in Virginia.

In 2005 the two organizations merged to become the Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance providing a powerful voice for contractors, aggregate producers, engineers, suppliers and service providers who design, build and maintain Virginia’s transportation network.

Our Mission:

VTCA is the advocate and spokesperson for Virginia’s transportation construction and aggregates industries. For you, we:

  • Fight to protect and grow transportation funding. VTCA serves as Virginia’s voice for long term, sustainable transportation investment – the economic engine of Virginia’s prosperity.
  • Maintain and promote open communication and cooperation between the industry, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy and other state agencies.
  • Provide the critical information needed to stay on top of industry issues. The Blue Top, Tech Log and Heard Along the Highway complement our award-winning [Directory of Members.]
  • Offer an extensive array of education and training—often not available anywhere else. The VTCA Spring Conference & Trade Show is the only one of its kind in Virginia.
