Expanding the Transportation Workforce: Roadway Maintenance Workers

Most local transportation agencies across Minnesota find themselves in a similar place: struggling to hire staff, and particularly roadway maintenance workers. Through both an awareness building campaign and the development of a training course roadmap (a checklist outlining suggested training courses new hires should complete), the focus of this project is to expand the number of people applying for roadway maintenance jobs within local agency transportation departments.
