Established in 1996, the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) includes 31 national associations and labor unions with a direct market interest in the federal transportation programs. The TCC focuses on the federal budget and surface transportation program policy issues.

The TCC is co-chaired by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America.

TCC members can be found in virtually every congressional district and provide a vital service to their communities by helping to improve the safety and efficiency of the transportation infrastructure systems so vital to American motorists and the business community. The unique TCC membership enables the coalition to articulate in a unified voice the impacts of federal policies and investment levels on all aspects of the transportation construction industry. The combination of contractors, engineers, manufacturers, suppliers and labor unions working together delivers a powerful message to Capitol Hill.
