Due to the extent of the disaster and the amount of debris produced, the department will conduct the first pass of pick up before starting a second pass. Locals are asked to be patient and where possible move debris to the roadway, not in travel lanes so the pickups will be effective.
Motorists can view where crews are, where they are going, and how many miles of roadway were cleared through an interactive map on 511la.org.
