A Variety of Backgrounds Working for a Common Goal
Established by the FTBA Board of Directors in 2004, the FTBA Hall of Fame honors, preserves and perpetuates the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of individuals that have brought and continue to bring significant recognition to the State of Florida in the field of transportation construction.
A new Hall of Fame class is selected once every six years. While the hall of fame’s inductees can include individuals ranging from past or active FTBA members, owners or employees, FDOT officials, or major industry supporters, they all meet the criteria of having greatly contributed to the development of the transportation construction industry in Florida.
