My name is David Giongco (pronounced jeeôngkō). I’m a registered civil engineer with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and currently the District 3 Local Assistance Engineer.

I assist local and regional agencies in delivering their federal and state funded projects. In addition to transportation funding and policy, my experience at Caltrans has included the planning, design, and maintenance of highway projects. Prior to joining Caltrans, I served in the U.S. Air Force as a Civil Engineer Officer.

More importantly, I’m a husband to a lovely woman, father of two awesome girls, and a loyal Oakland Raiders season ticket holder.

About the Site

I originally created this site in 2011 to serve as a log for my reference, but it has evolved into a platform where I share news and advice with others who also work on federal-aid transportation projects. The topics I share vary from local programs policy and procedure updates to my observations working with local agencies and their projects. Here are a few posts that have been frequently visited:

The information shared on this site is written and curated by me. Any views on this site are represented solely by me.

This site is NOT an official publication of the Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Caltrans, or any other agency or organization.

I do my best to share the most accurate and current information available. There, however, may be mistakes, and with the constantly evolving environment of the Federal-Aid Highway Program and Local Programs, some details may have become inaccurate by the time a post is read.
