Caltrans suspending all highway maintenance projects due to worker death

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT HOPE (CBS 8) – Caltrans is suspending all highway maintenance projects, after a worker was hit and killed in Mount Hope.

52-year-old Richard Gonzalez died shortly after being hit by a Cadillac on the connector from northbound 15 to the eastbound 94 Monday.

The CHP says he was trying to cross the road, and the driver, who was not cited, couldn't avoid hitting him.

Gonzalez is the third Caltrans road worker to die on the job in the last 7 weeks.

The agency ordered the work stoppage so administrators can review safety procedures.
