Heavy Highway Construction Overview


From checking equipment for proper operation to controlling large machines, Heavy Highway Construction Workers require specialized knowledge and skills to ensure a safe work environment. Heavy Highway Construction jobs entail either construction management and engineering or heavy equipment operation, depending on the individual's formal education and previous experience. Construction Workers need to be able to activate powerful equipment, coordinate machine functions with crew members and safely operate heavy machinery such as road graders, trench excavators and bulldozers. Highway construction operators tend to work irregular hours to avoid traffic disruptions, and opportunities for overtime are available to meet required deadlines.

Many employers prefer candidates to be proficient in math, English, welding, shop and blueprint reading. To attain a higher paid position, candidates can further their education at a community college, association training program or vocational school. Heavy Highway Construction Workers can enter into apprenticeship programs to gain on-the-job training and technical instruction, which can take between two and four years to complete. Those who wish to obtain a managerial position should earn a bachelor's degree in a construction-related sector.
