Working With Us


Our Approach

“Everyone’s idea of a perfect employer is different - the question of how your values line up with your employer is personal. Is it money, lifestyle, family etc. that’s most important to an individual? For me my job has to be a balance between give and take. Main Roads comes pretty close as the ultimate place for values and the balance between family and work.” - Michael Lopresti, Engineering Associate
