Project Highlight of the Week

Hurricane Irma Clean-up

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, the Streets & Drainage Division reported 197 trees that were completely or partially blocking streets.  Over 60 of those locations included trees in power lines.  Work teams worked with utility companies throughout the night in on Monday, September 11, and until 10:00 PM each night through Thursday.  All streets were open to traffic as of 10:00 PM on Thursday night.

The Streets & Drainage staff also worked with Landscape Management and Solid Waste to clean up sites where debris was pushed to the shoulder of the road.

You can find more updates to on-going projects on the Manager's Snapshot.
