Sacramento — In this News Flash, Caltrans shares the safety efforts and behind-the-scenes footage honoring the lives of Caltrans employees who died in the line of duty including a special tribute to Bay Area Landscape Maintenance Worker Quanda McGadney, 51. Quanda was killed on June 3, 2022, while working on Interstate 80 in Solano County. She served the people of California for more than 18 years and joined Caltrans in 2018.

At its annual memorial at the State Capitol in April, Caltrans honored the legacies of 189 highway workers who died since 1921 keeping others safe. Unfortunately and tragically, that number has increased from 189 to 190 since the memorial.
