In the summers of 2013 and 2014, HNTB, the design firm for the project, brought on recent Bishop Mora Salesian High School graduates (2 graduates per summer) for a 6-week Summer Internship Program. They had the opportunity to interact with elected city officials, the City Engineer, Bureau of Engineering staff, the community outreach team, the Cultural Affairs Commission, public utility executives, client partners and other stakeholders. The City is continuing to look into internship opportunit6thStViaduct-StudentsAtMaltzanArch.jpgies on the project.
