Heavy Highway Construction jobs entail either construction management and engineering or heavy equipment operation, depending on the individual's formal education and previous experience.

Highway construction operators tend to work irregular hours to avoid traffic disruptions, and opportunities for overtime are available to meet required deadlines.

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.
