The Voice of the Railroad Construction Industry

About the NRC

The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association, Inc. (NRC) is the only trade association organized specifically to serve the needs of railroad contractors, suppliers, and the entire railroad and rail transit construction industry. NRC's primary objective is to advance the mutual interests of its members and the railroad and rail transit construction industry.

The NRC works hard to expand rail construction and maintenance business opportunities, protect rail contractors from intrusive government regulation, and improve railroad construction safety and operations.

The NRC is located in Washington, DC, where NRC staff and the Board of Directors work closely with government and business leaders to promote and protect rail contractors and suppliers.

NRC member companies experience many benefits including:

  • Continual support for legislation that provides funding for rail and transit infrastructure projects, as well as protection against harmful policies and regulations;
