Pros: definate work
Cons: under paid
I am responsible for performing testing and sampling in order to determine if a given site is suitable for road construction. Surveying equipment is carried to the site where new road construction projects begin. I must also make sure that all equipment and materials conform to state standards. Once the site is ready for construction, I am responsible for supervising the crew to remove all debris, rocks and trees in the way of the construction project. My team and I construct roads using machines and equipment such as concrete mixers, sanders, loaders and dump trucks. I also perform regular maintenance of roads such as plowing, patching asphalt, removing trash and repairing road signs, according to the DOT standard.
