Highway Maintenance Workers - Wages & Trends

The worker's level of experience and responsibility affect wages. Pay also varies by area of the country. In parts of the country that get snow, work for highway maintenance workers is seasonal. Some workers travel in order to have work all year. For example, those who live in the Midwest or Northeast may move south during the winter months. Other workers have other jobs during the off-season.

Highway maintenance workers who work full time generally receive benefits. Typical benefits include sick leave, paid vacation, and health insurance. Some employers also provide a retirement plan.
