Q Is everyone who wears an orange shirt or vest a Caltrans worker?
   
A.

No. They may be city or county or private workers, or even probationers working off their time. Caltrans does its own maintenance work, but for new projects or major reconstruction, private contractors are hired. To identify Caltrans workers, look for the white hard hats and orange trucks with the CT logo on the side.
