OpportunityCorridor Section 2 - Careers in Bridge/Highway Construction

Time:   1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

The Opportunity Corridr is a planned boulevard that will run from East 55th Street at Interstate 490 to East 105th Street in University Circle. The area between I-490 and University Circle has become known as the “Forgotten Triangle” due to the lack of economic activity. Outside of the transportation benefits it could bring to the Cleveland area, this effort opens the potential for new economic development, new jobs and a new identity for the community.

  • Learn about the design and construction of the Opportunity Corridor Section 2 Project.
  • Learn about and meet key representatives from The Great Lakes Construction Co. as well as GPD Group and Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) who are involved with the project.

    Our Program is sponsored by the Cleveland Employers Association and is FREE to all participating schools.
