Miami-Dade County road clearing activities

MIAMI (September 16, 2017)

Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works and Department of Solid Waste Management continue clearing and removing hurricane debris throughout the community. 

Road clearing activities consist of pushing debris from the streets onto the swale for later removal by the Department of Solid Waste Management or one of its contractors.  

Crews are discovering instances where property owners are placing debris on roadway pavement where streets have already been cleared. This will impede traffic and the hurricane debris collection process, and delay the collection of curbside debris piles in front of residents' homes. Residents are asked to refrain from placing debris on the street or they may be subject to fines. Debris should be piled in the grass swale area and away from fire hydrants.

The community's cooperation and patience during debris clearing and removal activities is appreciated. 

Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works expects to be finished clearing roadways for trafficʉۻSunday evening.
