Deputy District Director of Maintenance



As Deputy Director of Maintenance, Ms. Deborah Wong, P.E., oversees a division of 1,100 people responsible for the care and upkeep of District 7's highway and freeways, including everything from pavement patching and vegetation control to rock blasting and sinkhole repair. The division works around the clock to protect taxpayers' investment in the 1,200-mile system and to ensure that it provides maximum safety to the motoring public.

Ms. Wong has been with Caltrans since 1993, having worked in the Traffic, Design, and Maintenance divisions, including more than 21 years of engineering and hands-on maintenance field experience. As West Region Area Manager, she ensured that freeway projects are designed to improve mobility and streamline maintenance operations, thereby minimizing maintenance closures, reducing workers' exposure to live traffic, and containing costs.

Leading the North Region maintenance design team as Design Manager for six years, Ms. Wong delivered award-winning projects that significantly reduced the number of worn lane miles through the Grapevine on Interstate 5, utilizing cutting-edge paving strategies, surveying methods, and traffic staging configurations.

Ms. Wong's focus as Deputy Director of Maintenance is on providing the safest transportation system possible for both motorists and workers, maximizing mobility, and securing funding to enable the division to meet and exceed its goals.

Ms. Wong is a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona in Civil Engineering.
