Need workers for your Florida road and bridge projects?
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has implemented a Statewide Workforce Development Program to work with community partners to identify and connect qualiﬁed workers with contractors for gainful employment on roadway construction projects. We’re also identifying entry-level workers to ﬁll contractor labor needs throughout the state.
The goal? To provide jobseekers with opportunities in road and bridge construction that put them on the path to successful careers that help improve lives. We’re also working to help contractors address the labor shortages in our high-demand industry.
Florida’s Statewide Workforce Development program beneﬁts employers, jobseekers and local communities by:
- Providing direct economic beneﬁts in communities where FDOT is building projects
- Building relationships with regional and local community and business groups
- Developing paths to career opportunities for future construction workers
- Addressing the construction labor shortage by recruiting and building a pipeline of skilled workers
