About Mississippi Road Builders Association
On June 22,1937, twenty-seven contractors while meeting at the Robert E. Lee Hotel in Jackson, Mississippi had the foresight to establish the Mississippi Highway Contractors Association. The objectives, as originally outlined by the founding group, included promoting the development of roads throughout the state, cooperating with other related entities to establish an on-going highway program, encouraging cooperation among the contractors, representing contractors with public officials, combating unfair practices, and assisting contractors in achieving the greatest organizational efficiency.
In 1949 the MHCA recognized the need to broaden its membership to include not only highway contractors but allied businesses as well. With that change came a new name, the Mississippi Road Builder's Association.
Today, the association serves to promote the construction of better roads at lower costs through the contract system, as well as to educate the public in the complex business of road improvements. The MRBA is dedicated to proactively serving our members across the state of Mississippi by promoting the building and maintenance of our roads and bridges to exemplary standards.
