The “Mile Marker” report shows Caltrans needs to improve in areas like safety, mobility, environmental sustainability and maintain existing roadways instead of building out.

A recent independent audit had criticized Caltrans for failing to move quickly enough on green house gas mitigation.

State Senator Mark Desaulnier recently authored legislation to bring more transparency to Caltrans. He says the Mile Marker is a good start toward changing the management culture.

“It’s insular,” says DeSaulnier. “It’s not very transparent at all. It doesn’t realize as an institution who it works for.”

The Mile Marker report says Caltrans has met four of its 15 performance measures this quarter. The report also says Caltrans is making progress on 13 of the 15.
