As more people relocate to or visit Florida, the demand for qualified construction workers grows. The booming population calls for additional housing, business expansion and improved roadways. Rapid population growth and expansion requires skilled workers, so now is the time to join the construction industry.

Transportation industry officials responded in 1999 by creating Construction Career Days. The nationwide educational outreach program is designed to cultivate interest in high school students for the wide variety of skilled construction careers. The local events give students the chance to get a feel for the field by participating in activities like operating machinery and speaking to experienced industry veterans.
