Baton Rouge - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that hurricane debris removal along state routes in St. Helena Parish is now complete. A total of 136,575 cubic yards of hurricane debris was removed.

Final debris removal passes are still ongoing throughout the southeast region. As a reminder, any debris placed on state roadways after the final pass has begun or after final completion will have to be removed through normal means and will not be removed by state contractors.

DOTD would like to remind citizens of the following important tips for assisting the debris removal process.
  • State contractors are only able to remove debris from state right-of-way.
  • Dark colored bagged debris will not be removed.
  • Please do not put debris on power lines, fire hydrants, utility stub outs or anything that would hinder the claw that grabs the debris.
Citizens may check for the latest statistical information, debris routes where there has been a pass, and where planned debris pickup is scheduled.
