The California Department of Transportation (Cal-Trans) issued a two year contract with Benchmark Environmental Engineering for asbestos and lead inspections on properties scheduled for demolition in the areas of Oakland, San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Solano and Sonoma.
Caltrans manages more than 45,000 miles of California’s highway and freeway lanes, provides inter-city rail services, permits more than 400 public-use airports and special-use hospital heliports, and works with local agencies. Caltrans carries out its mission of improving mobility across California with six primary programs: Aeronautics, Highway Transportation, Mass Transportation, Transportation Planning, Administration and the Equipment Service Center.
The department has been active in moving the people and commerce of California for more than 100 years from a loosely connected web of footpaths and rutted wagon routes to the sophisticated system that today serves the transportation needs of more than 30 million residents.
Benchmark Environmental Engineering, a California based company, provides environmental testing services for numerous local, state and federal agencies
