Caltrans 27th Annual Workers Memorial Remembered

SACRAMENTO — In this Caltrans News Flash, you’ll see how the department honors its 187 highway workers who have paid the ultimate price while on the job. This year, Caltrans paid special tribute to Jorge Lopez, Randy Whisenhunt and Annette Brooks, who all lost their lives since last year’s memorial. Mr. Lopez was an electrician who was struck and killed on Sept. 1, 2016, by an errant big rig that crossed onto the shoulder on SR-14 in Acton. Whisenhunt was an electrician from the Escondido Yard, who passed away on Oct. 9, 2016, as a result of injuries suffered on the job. Brooks was a Structural Steel Painter Supervisor and was shot and killed at a Caltrans facility in Rio Dell on April 24.

This observance also highlights safety awareness for employees in work zones, as well as the motoring public.

This News Flash is the 130th in a series of videos highlighting Caltrans' activities that present the wide-ranging and critical work that Caltrans does to enhance California's economy and livability. To see more of these and other videos, search for #CaltransNewsFlash on Twitter or visit

    Looking at your power of spelling, grammar and syntax you must be a huge benefit to society, This memorial is for people who died on the job. Regardless of political affiliation they had families and mattered to others.
    How dare you use this as an opportunity to make a stupid, or in your case, a STOOPID, comment.
