Summary
The first woman to serve in such a position in California and the entire United States, Ms. Gianturco oversaw Caltrans almost from the beginning of its formation from the Division of Highways and a handful of other state agencies. Major changes occurred in California's approach to transportation challenges and issues during her tenure. Some of these came about as a result of her own initiative or objectives of the Brown administration, while others were imposed by the California legislature or external factors
