After years of planning, the construction of the new Harbor Bridge is set to begin soon which means jobs are being created.

Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend has partnered with the Harbor Bridge project in an effort to fill hundreds of positions needed to assist with further development of the bridge. A large hiring event will be hosted at the Sunrise Career Center later this morning.

Job hopefuls will have the opportunity to meet with representatives attached to the project. This is the first of several jobs to come for Workforce Solutions. The event will last from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Veterans will have priority entry.
