Host your own NRC Grassroots Event

The NRC's grassroots program was created to invite United States Congressmen to visit NRC member facilities and construction project sites. These visits give the Members of Congress firsthand knowledge of the rail industry and demonstrate how rail contractors and suppliers are positively affecting the rail industry and the local and national economy. If your company is interested in hosting your Congressman for a visit, please contact Ashley Bosch to begin the process.

Garrison, KY - On 6/10/13, U.S. Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY-4) joined representatives from Tram Construction Inc. and the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC) for a tour of the Tram Construction railyard in Garrison, KY.

Tram Construction began in 1982 with the president of the company moonlighting out of the back of his pickup truck. 31 years later, Tram now employs 26 workers in the northeastern KY area.

The Congressman joined Tram Construction executives for an introduction and briefing followed by a tour of their rail yard. Tram Construction specializes in track inspection, track construction and rehabilitation, construction materials and supplies.

"As a member of the Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials subcommittee of the House Transportation Committee, I appreciate how vital railways are to our nation's economy," said Rep. Massie. "Railways are important to our community because they create jobs, and job creation is a priority for Congress. Tram Construction employs more than two dozen northern Kentuckians and is an example of how local industry can boost the economy."
