The Georgia Highway Contractors Association (GHCA) is a trade association composed of member companies involved in the construction and maintenance of highways, streets, bridges, and transportation systems throughout the state of Georgia. The GHCA serves as the lobbying organization for this industry and as a voice for industry with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and other state agencies.
GHCA member companies are hard at work building and repairing our roads and bridges. With more than 123,000 miles of public roads, nearly 15,000 bridges and 11 Major Mobility projects adding 300 new lane miles by 2030, highway contractors need road workers now.

Students in middle and high schools, even if they’re in a construction or shop class, are rarely exposed to the highway construction industry. Recognizing this, the GHCA has helped create a NCCER compliant curriculum and pathway for GA high schools to utilize heavy equipment simulators and learn the basics of how to operate equipment vital to our industry.
The GHCA serves as the primary legislative advocate for the highway industry in Georgia. The GHCA works with the Georgia Department of Transportation and lobbies for policy and laws to improve the state of Georgia’s roads and bridges.
