Marysville Calif.-- Caltrans District 3 is hosting a job fair in Marysville today, Friday, in an attempt to fill about 200 open positions.

Caltrans officials say they need civil engineers, surveyors, administrators, planners and equipment operators for jobs in the northern district. In the next five years, we could see the Caltrans workforce go up by 10% to 2,000 new employees.

This comes as the new state gas tax is fudning a series of new projects. A $2.2M pavement resurfacing job just north of Oroville on Highway 70.

Within a few years, a $11.6M fiber optics project on Highway 99 from Estates Drive to Garner Lane in Chico, that will alert people to delays with signs and quick-maps.

While it is typically not easy to get a job with Caltrans, the department is cutting some of traditional requirements and protocol because they have so many positions to fill in a short amount of time.

A gas tax and other fees will deliver about $5.2B a year for transportation over the next decade. Because there is no guarantee for how long the additional funds will last, there is some fears from unions that the new jobs will not be permanent.

The job fair is today, Friday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the caltrans district 3 office in Marysville there's a link on our website with more information.

It certainly didn't feel like early December around northern California this afternoon with plentiful sunshine and much warmer than average highs. A cold front is approaching, but we unfortunately don't have rain or snow in our forecast.
