Hurricane debris removal along Louisiana highways continues
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s transportation department estimates it will finish removing the debris left on state roadways from Hurricanes Laura and Delta by the end of January.
The final pass to collect debris in Allen and Jefferson Davis parishes and the lower portions of Cameron Parish should be complete by Dec. 23, the Department of Transportation and Development said in a statement.
The last debris removal for Beauregard Parish, Calcasieu Parish and upper portions of Cameron Parish should be done by Jan. 31, the agency says.
Contractors hired by the transportation department have removed nearly 1.5 million cubic yards of debris from state-maintained routes in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron and Jefferson Davis parishes, according to the agency.
