UTCA’S BOB BRIANT CHOSEN FOR AMERICAN ROAD AND TRANSPORTATION BUILDERS ASSOCIATION HALL OF FAME

Farmingdale – Robert Briant, Jr., CEO of the Utility and Transportation Contractors Association (UTCA), will be inducted into the American Road and Transportation Association (ARTBA) Foundation Transportation Development Hall of Fame.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected to join legendary figures in the transportation industry, including my father, in the Transportation Development Hall of Fame,” said Briant. “Although my name may appear on the plaque, this award is actually a testament to the dedication and hard work of UTCA members, staff and partners who have been tireless advocates for the infrastructure industry.”

The Hall of Fame recognizes individuals and families who have made significant contributions to the development of the nation’s transportation and who have demonstrated exceptional leadership abilities. Briant’s father, Robert Briant, Sr., who founded UTCA, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013.

UTCA Executive Director Dave Rible praised Briant’s commitment to the organization and the industry as a whole.

“Bob’s passion for growing and improving UTCA is matched only by his dedication to strengthening the infrastructure industry,” he said. “I am honored to work with Bob at UTCA and congratulate him on this incredible recognition of his three decades of service in the construction field.”

A unanimous selection to the board of directors, Briant has worked with UTCA since 1982 and is president of the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank, a member of the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund Authority and past chair of the Clean Water Coalition.

“I have been fortunate to work with so many incredible organizations and individuals who share my goal of promoting economic prosperity and protecting our health and environment by building and maintaining a world-class infrastructure system,” Briant said. “While I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished during my time at UTCA, I look forward to continuing to fight for the absolutely vital infrastructure industry in New Jersey and across the country.”

Past Hall of Fame inductees include President Dwight Eisenhower; former US Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta; Garrett Morgan, who invented the traffic light; the founder of Caterpiller; and the Roebling family, who built the Brooklyn Bridge.
