initiatives:

  • Partnered with AGC Georgia on relief for City of Atlanta while I-85 Bridge was out in order to assist with repair efforts.
  • GRMCA built and led a coalition of industry groups working with the Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) to receive a temporary hours of service variance.  The variance allows each company’s drivers to receive an additional 10 hours of drive time per week. The goal was to provide additional flexibility for Georgia ready mix producers in meeting demand.
  • Supported NRMCA’s Build With Strength coalition by helping local cities enact a building code ordinance to ban wood frame construction on buildings taller than three stories or more than 100,000 square feet in an effort to promote fire safety.
