There are more than 1 million California jobs in the construction and materials sector. This sector includes specialized occupations that pay above-average wages such as engineers and hydrologists, but also other sizable occupations such as equipment operator and mechanics found in nearly every community throughout the state. More than 6,000 new jobs per year will be created to build and repair California’s roads and bridges, funded by SB 1, the California Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
