COLORADO — The Colorado Department of Transportation is looking to hire drivers to drive nearly 1,000 snowplows for this upcoming season.

The minimum requirement you need to apply is having a Colorado Driver's License Class A or B and two years experience in physical labor and/or heavy equipment operation experience.

Last year, CDOT allowed experience in driving a forklift or bus to fulfill the heavy equipment operation requirement.

There are seasonal, part-time and full-time job opportunities being offered for both maintenance workers and snowplow drivers. Seasonal positions can generally last up to nine months.

“Our maintenance personnel take a lot of pride in their equipment, the roads they patrol, the communities they serve and the teamwork that’s required to make sure our highways are safe for the traveling public,” said Kyle Lester, CDOT Director of Maintenance.
