AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has collected more than ten million cubic feet of debris — or the equivalent of about 186 football fields — in the four districts most impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
More than 600 TxDOT employees working weekly rotations have been brought in from around the state to assist local employees with debris removal in the hardest-hit areas on the coast from Corpus Christi to Beaumont.
At the height of the storm, more than 500 road closures impacted the state transportation system. Today, only one road — Park Rd. 1C in Buescher State Park in Bastrop County — remains closed due to damage. Of the more than 4,300 bridges inspected following the storm, only 13 required repairs.
