Debris clearing efforts on County-managed roads is complete

MIAMI (September 17, 2017)

Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) finished clearing all County-managed roads of debris at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17.

DTPW manages 255 square miles of roadways in highly urbanized areas of unincorporated Miami-Dade County and 144 square miles of roadways in less dense areas, along with 575 miles of arterial roadways. 

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

Residents are asked to refrain from placing debris back on paved roadways. Debris should be piled in the grass swale area and away from fire hydrants while the Department of Solid Waste Management continues its debris removal efforts. 

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