Started in 2002, by the Alabama Road Builders Association Board of Directors, the Alabama Road Builders Hall of Fame honors, preserves, and perpetuates the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of individuals and companies/institutions that have brought and continue to bring significant recognition to the State of Alabama in the field of transportation construction.
The Alabama Road Builders Hall of Fame is governed by a board of directors made up of past Alabama Road Builders Association presidents from each decade that ARBA has existed. This board determines the criteria for selecting inductees, the eligibility of candidates and a selection process for induction to the Alabama Road Builders Hall of Fame. All candidates must meet criteria established by the board for each category. Currently, there are two categories: Individuals and Companies/Institutions.

Nominations for induction into the Alabama Road Builders Hall of Fame are made by open call to the ARBA membership. The Hall of Fame board of directors, which is representative of most geographic areas in Alabama, then designates those nominees who are to be inducted in a given year. Nominees who are not selected are held in an active file for consideration for three succeeding years. This file will contain biographical and other data on many outstanding individuals or corporations/institutions.
The transportation construction industry is delighted about the creation of an Alabama Road Builders Hall of Fame. Individually and collectively, our industry makes significant contributions to the advancement of engineering and technology, leading to an enhanced economic, cultural, and political future for the state and nation. Those honored will serve as symbols inspiring others to pursue rewarding and challenging careers in all transportation construction fields.
