DOTD completes hurricane debris removal in northeast region

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that all hurricane debris has been removed from state roadways in the northeast region (Jackson, Lincoln, Union, Ouachita and Morehouse Parishes) following the impacts of Hurricane Laura, which made landfall on August 27, 2020.

Crews began debris pickup in early September 2020 and since then, have removed more than 121,000 cubic yards of vegetative storm debris caused by Hurricane Laura from state maintained routes in the northeast region. Statewide, crews have removed more than 2.6 million cubic yards of debris from state right-of-way.

Debris removal operations were completed on December 29, 2020.

Hurricane debris removal efforts are still ongoing in other parishes across the state impacted by the storms.

Residents can monitor for the latest statistical information, debris routes where there has been a pass, and where planned debris pickup is scheduled.
