Toby Crow, Building Tomorrow's Highway Construction Workforce: The Partner Perspective
The U.S Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration has selected South Dakota Department of Transportation as a pilot state for the Highway Construction Workforce Project. We are here to recruit and educate hard working, reliable people for construction careers that are available in the state. The Highway Construction Awareness Course will give some insight into what these jobs have to offer and can connect you with contractors looking for potential On-the-Job trainees.
Our task force consists of a partnership between SD Department of Transportation, SD Department of Education, SD Association of General Contractors, SD Department of Labor and Regulation, and U.S. Department of Transportation. Our goal is to create career pathways for highway construction occupations and link employers with qualified applicants.
