TDOT Assists with Storm Debris Removal

Thursday, March 08, 2012 | 04:40am
Chattanooga, Tenn. – Tennessee Department of Transportation crews are assisting with debris removal in several Tennessee counties in the wake of last week’s severe storms. Most of the clean-up efforts are concentrated in Cumberland, Dekalb, Jackson, Overton, and Putnam Counties.
Residents in those areas are asked to separate brush and tree debris from other types of storm debris, and to place those items as close to the public right of way as possible. Storm debris should not be placed in the travel lanes of any state or local roadway. Debris will not be removed from private property.

Debris removal will continue until Monday, April 2, 2012.
