Roads to Your Future

Let's Build Tomorrow's Highway Construction Workforce

The Highway Construction Workforce Partnership's goal is to increase the capacity and capability of the highway construction workforce. By partnering with key organizations to develop and deploy highway construction training and placement programs, this initiative will increase the number of individuals trained and hired in highway construction trades and crafts.

Roads To Your Future will help you to:

  • Understand the magnitude of the highway construction workforce challenge
  • Start a highway construction workforce development effort in your community
  • Market highway construction job openings in your area
  • Contact partners to help you identify, train, and place workers into highway construction careers
  • Connect to a national partnership of highway construction practitioners and resources

For information about the HCWP please click on the tabs above (Identify, Train, Place and Engage). There are also videos featured on our website that provide more insight into the program from a partner level.

We are excited to partner with you! Please contact us any time if you can't find what you need here or would like to speak with someone about your specific workforce issues.
