Honoring Fallen Workers

Today, Caltrans is holding its annual statewide Fallen Workers Memorial at the California State Capitol. The event highlights safety awareness in work zones and remembers those who lost their lives building, maintaining, and operating California’s world-class transportation system. This year a special tribute is being paid to William “Cas” Casdorph, a Highway Maintenance Leadworker, who suffered fatal injuries working along State Route 163.

VMS works closely with Caltrans and many other transportation departments and honors these workers who put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of others. Help keep our highway workers safe by slowing down and being alert in construction zones. Learn more about the Caltrans Workers Memorial.
