Join CDOT for Central 70 Project Hiring Fair Nov. 3

Nov. 2, 2018 - Find Opportunties, Family Fun from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.


DENVER—With construction underway for the Central 70 project, the project team is hosting its first hiring fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at CDOT's Neighborhood Training Center, 3600 E. 46th Ave. in Denver.

Job seekers in the Denver metro area are invited to get connected with high-paying jobs in the construction industry. Kiewit Infrastructure, local signatory unions, subcontractors, and WORKNOW (an alliance of organizations that integrate construction industry job training and community resources) will be present. Attendees are encouraged to bring their résumés.

Food trucks will be on-site, and free shuttles will be available from the 40th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard RTD Station every 30 minutes. There will be supervised children's activities, and families are encouraged to attend.

The Central 70 Project is the first highway construction project in Colorado, and one of fewer than a dozen nationwide, to receive federal permission to pilot local hiring goals. CDOT has asked project contractor Kiewit Meridiam Partners to hire 20 percent of all jobs from communities along the I-70 corridor.
