Transportation construction companies from three states were recognized for their outstanding employee safety programs during the American Road & Transportation Builders Association's (ARTBA) National Convention in Savannah, Ga. The awards were presented during a Sept. 23 luncheon hosted by ARTBA's Foundation.

The annual "Contractor Safety Awards" were created to promote worker safety and health as core values of the transportation design and construction industry. Finalists were selected based on objective information provided to ARTBA that demonstrated outstanding safety performance.

Representatives from each company made presentations at the convention to a panel of industry professionals.
