Caltrans Workers Memorial 2021

A salute to our colleagues who died on the job

"April 29 marked the 31st annual Caltrans Workers Memorial, where once a year we press a collective pause button on our busy schedules to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the department and our great state," says Tamie McGowen, Caltrans' assistant deputy director of Public Affairs. "To the colleagues, families and friends who have endured emotional goodbyes to 189 souls since 1921, our memorial commemorates the indelible, poignant impressions they made on our lives."
