DOTD completes debris removal in Concordia Parish

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises residents that debris removal in Concordia Parish - and surrounding parishes – as a result of hurricanes and winter storms is complete.

Along with the completion of these clean-up operations, residents are asked to refrain from placing their personal waste and other debris on the state highway right-of-way. DOTD crews have limited resources for this type of on-going debris removal. Residents are urged to dispose of their trash through alternate means as they did prior to the storms.

Hurricanes Laura and Delta in 2020, along with two historic winter storms in February 2021, left behind thousands of cubic yards of debris along state routes and other roadways. DOTD crews and contractors have been working to clear this debris since those weather events struck the state.

More than 3.3 million cubic yards of debris have been removed from state highways across Louisiana over the past several months.

Residents are again asked to no longer place personal waste and other debris on the roadway shoulder or near the highway for DOTD workers to address. Instead, these items should be disposed of using alternate means to ensure the cleanliness of the roadway and safety of the traveling public.
