SACRAMENTO — In this Caltrans New Flash, we take you behind the scenes of our annual Workers Memorial at the State Capitol, where about one thousand people attended to honor the legacies of 189 Caltrans employees who died in the line of duty since 1921.


The poignant memorial included a special tribute to San Diego maintenance leadworker William “Cas” Casdorph, 57, who died Sept. 19 along State Route 163. He was a dedicated family man who served in the department for nearly 20 years.
