Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association

The Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association (IRTBA) has served as the leading transportation industry trade association in Illinois since 1938. IRTBA member firms design, build, and maintain the state highways, transit systems, railways, and aviation systems. The core purpose of IRTBA is to advance and promote the transportation design and construction industry in Illinois.
