Caltrans Remembering 189 Fallen Workers at the State Capitol

Caltrans Ceremony

Caltrans honored its 189 employees who have lost their lives on the job since 1921 in a solemn reminder to motorists to drive safely and pay attention when traveling in highway work zones.

The remembrance featured 189 traffic cones, each bearing the name of a fallen worker. Configured in the shape of a diamond, the tribute is symbolic of a highway caution sign. A single black cone at the center of this formation signifies all workers lost on the State Highway system, including private contractors and CHP officers. This year’s tribute did not include a public event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin provided a wreath presentation.
