Caltrans (Executive) Fact Booklet (CFB - Formerly EFB)

The Fact Booklet is now found in the DRISI Library. Researched and compiled by the Data Analysis and Reporting Branch, the Caltrans Fact Booklet contains a selection of data from many of the divisions in the Department. The booklet was originally printed in card format for Caltrans Executives, but since we compiled the information into a booklet, it has been shared widely throughout the Department and to members of the legislature.
