The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will host a Maintenance Career Fair in Bakersfield Sept. 26 where people can learn about jobs available in the agency.

The passage of Senate Bill 1 (the Road Repair and Accountability Act) is expected to generate $54 billion through 2027 and increase Caltrans' workload by accelerating construction projects and addressing deferred maintenance needs.

The free event will include career informational booths, hiring process assistance and information about current local job openings. Representatives from careers in maintenance will be on-hand including electricians, heavy equipment operators, highway maintenance, tree maintenance, landscaping and more. Computers will also be available for applicants to submit information online.

The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 26 at America’s Job Center of California, 200 China Grade Loop.
