TxDOT Removes an Incredible Amount of Debris From Hurricane Harvey
The Texas Department of Transportation has announced they have removed over 10 million cubic feet of debris left over from Hurricane Harvey.
To put this number into perspective: (From TxDot)
"...the equivalent of 186 football fields 1 foot high..."
That is ALOT of debris from this event and TxDot has been working hard to get it all out of the way.
“We continue to deliver much needed service to those communities seeking our assistance,” said TxDOT Deputy Executive Director Marc Williams. “I am so proud of the men and women of TxDOT who have so selflessly given their time and energy to this clean-up effort, even while many of them continue coping with their own personal losses.”
But one amazing fact is that out of 4,300 bridges inspected, only 13 required repair. We know how to build them in Texas.
So hats off to TxDot for helping clean up what was a nasty natural disaster!
